Nipsey Hussle’s Brother Arrested
Nipsey Hussle’s brother, Samiel Asghedom, was arrested last Friday (March 19), following reports of an altercation in Los Angeles that allegedly involved the 2011 Freshmen and his former manager Eugene “Big U” Henley.
According to streetgangs.com, Nipsey and Henley were involved in a fight in Hyde Park. The site spoke to eye witnesses who claim that Asghedom pulled out a gun to defend his brother and fired into the air. An LAPD officer then arrived and allegedly shot Asghedom, but missed.
XXLMag.com reached a rep for the LAPD, who would not confirm the rumors, but did confirm the arrest. Asghedom was picked up early Friday morning at 1:30 a.m. He is currently being held on $100,000 bail.
Nipsey has not returned calls for comment as of press time, but he took to his Twitter account to address the situation. “I ain’t dead….I ain’t in jail…..and I ain’t on tha run. TMC.” Henley has yet to speak.
