Video shows Blueface pulling gun and firing it multiple times at truck driver as rapper is arrested
Blueface's attempted murder arrest is based on an incident on October 8, where he's accused of pulling a gun and shooting at the driver of a truck
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: The alleged shooting by rapper Blueface of a truck driver in Las Vegas who had gotten into a brawl with the musician's entourage was captured in a video. The 25-year-old, whose real name is Johnathan Jamall Porter, was arrested outside Lo-Chicken Lo's & Waffles on November 15 in what appears to have been an undercover operation.
In a surveillance video obtained by TMZ, Blueface can be seen leaving a club and crossing the street on Oct 8. As a truck approaches him, the driver allegedly inquires who was responsible for attacking him that night. The rapper then appears to pull out a handgun and shoot several times at the driver of the truck, who then speeds away from the scene. According to witnesses who saw Blueface arrested on Tuesday, November 15, six to eight officers in plainclothes vehicles were on the scene. He faces serious charges, including firing a weapon at a dwelling, building, vehicle, or boat and attempted murder using a deadly weapon. He was seen on camera wearing a brown tracksuit and lying on the ground tied up before being helped to his feet and taken into custody.
Blueface was detained alongside his 22-year-old girlfriend Chrisean Rock who is also a rapper. In relation to the incident, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department issued the following statement: "On November 15, 2022, at approximately 2:40 p.m., LVMPD detectives arrested 25-year-old Johnathan Porter on charges stemming from a shooting that took place on October 8, 2022, in the 6300 block of Windy Road." A video that Chrisean Malone released on social media for her roughly 2.5 million followers showed Blueface and Chrisean Malone just hours before he was arrested. In the video, they laughed and joked around while holding hands and sharing a kiss in a hotel hallway. Chrisean chastised trolls in a fan update for encouraging her to leave the rapper while she was sporting a Blueface necklace. She remarked that Blueface didn't leave her when she "went in," perhaps alluding to her detention in August following an incident at a bar in Arizona.
Chrisean stated that Blueface would be returning home and that they will be appearing in court on Wednesday, November 16. After killing a gas station robber, Blueface was previously detained and charged with firing at an occupied vehicle in California in November 2018. A loaded, unregistered handgun that was found in his possession by law police in February 2019 led to his arrest for felony gun possession.
