What Happened During the Incident Involving Quavo on the Yacht in Miami?
According to 7 News, a police report from the Miami Beach Police Department describes a scene in which officers responded to a yacht docked in the area of The Wharf Miami to investigate a possible armed robbery.
While it appears as though all of the details surrounding the incident have not yet been revealed, the South Florida news outlet explains that the yacht's captain accused two men involved in chartering the boat of becoming "very aggressive" toward the crew when they were told it was time to head back to shore. The captain alleges that the men, identified by police as Cornell A. Whitfield and Anteneh A. Workeneh, threatened his life and said they would "throw him off" the yacht if the money for the charter was not refunded.
What Was Quavo's Role in the Miami Yacht Incident?
According to Page Six, the Miami Beach Police Department included in their report that Quavo was on the yacht during whatever incident went down, as evident in the video below. When XXL reached out to Quavo's team regarding the matter, a rep for the Atlanta rapper provided an official statement.
"To be clear Quavo was NOT mentioned in the police report narrative," the statement reads. "Not only was Quavo NOT arrested, he is not even listed as a witness to any alleged dispute. Ultimately, no one on the boat was arrested. There is no story here regarding Quavo and any incident."
