The surrender that took place on Tuesday, June 8 was arranged by his lawyers Saam Zangeneh and Bradford Cohen.

According to Miami Herald, the 21-year-old rapper shot a security guard in the leg at the King of Diamonds strip club and he was also apparently on video walking out of a show at the club with a weapon. The videos surfaced on Instagram. Pooh Shiesty is signed to Gucci Mane’s 1017 Records label and is best known for his hit single ‘Back in Blood’.

What exactly happened on the night of club shooting?

According to Miami Herald, the warrant revealed that Shiesty had just finished his performance at the strip club on the 7000 block of Northwest 72nd Avenue and he was being escorted by a security guard when an unknown individual knocked money from the rapper’s back pocket. The rapper then got back on the stage after everyone scrambled to pick up the cash.

The warrant revealed that the security guard asked him to hide the firearm and tried to put his hand on Shiesty to prevent him from taking the firearm out from his waistband. The hip-hop artist then took out the gun and fired one shot toward the guard when he was being led out of the club again. The guard spilled the beans to the cops that when he saw Shiesty taking the gun out, his jumping out of the way “saved him from being shot in the torso.” The rapper later fled the club with his entourage in a Cadillac Escalade.
 



 

 

Did Pooh Shiesty lie about getting robbed?

The Memphis rapper became a hot gossip on the Internet after someone allegedly stole $40,000 from him at a club. Many on social media also claimed that he fired gun at the club after he lost money. The hashtag, “Pooh Shiesty robbed”, trended on Twitter as many social media users took to the micro-blogging site to talk about the same. However, the rapper soon cleared the air on the matter in an Instagram story claiming that no one robbed him.  The hip hop artist, who is known for his Gangsta rap, soon took to Instagram to deny all the rumors floating around of him getting robbed of $40,000. Taking control of the narrative, he wrote to his three million Instagram followers that they were all false allegations. “False allegations, nothing never been took from me.”

Should’ve done the race. ohh well at least we know he’s a poet and not about it.” One added, “Bi**h I got my own fye. Don’t need security at the club.” That man meant every word of that s**t.” The next one shared, “I bet half these rappers are high on drugs when they name themselves Person pooh shiesty WTF.” One individual concluded, “Most of these street dudes that run around shooting security didn't name themselves. It's what the streets call them and there is way worse out there.”
