Trippie Redd Released From Jail Following Assault Arrest
Trippie Redd had a very eventful Monday (June 18). The Canton, Ohio rapper was released from jail yesterday, the same day of his 19th birthday.
The "Deadman's Wonderland" artist had been in jail since June 12 after he was arrested for allegedly hitting a woman in the back of her head with a gun. According to the victim, the incident took place after she was told to leave a home where Trippie and his girlfriend among others were hanging out. As she was leaving, she claims Trippie hit her with the weapon.
Police noticed the bump on the woman's head and arrested Trippie at the scene. He was taken to Fulton County Jail and charged with one count of aggravated assault and one count of battery causing substantial physical harm. According to their website, the Fulton County Sheriff's Office also added an additional count of being a fugitive from justice. It's unclear where this charge is coming from.
While getting out of jail would be a cause for celebration, Trippie's day was met with sad news following the death of his friend and collaborator, XXXTentacion. Following the news of X's death, Trippie shared old photos and videos of the two on Instagram, writing, "Some birthday I'm having."
After collaborating on the 2017 song "Fuck Love," Trippie and XXXTentacion's relationship had its ups and downs. The two appeared to squash their beef in March after X gave a shout out to Trippie during a benefit concert in Florida.
The "Dark Knight Dummo" rapper showed the love back, writing on Instagram, "I love you too bro thanks for this it takes a real man to speak on shit and really apologize for their actions u a smart ass guy just remember I'm always in your corner and I also apologize for anything I've said about you I don't hate u zzz @xxxtentacion hml."
