Rapper Jacquees has all charges dropped after cops who arrested him skip court hearing
Jacquees got all three criminal charges from his Miami arrest dropped after the guards who initially arrested him did not show up for the hearing
Rapper Jacquees definitely has enough reason to be in a good mood, and he probably has a wider smile on his face than he did in his mugshot since the singer got all three charges from his Miami arrest dropped, all thanks to the guards who initially arrested him, reports TMZ.
A certain rep from the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office told the publication that only one out of the seven police officers that were involved in the March bust showed up in court to give their testimony on Tuesday, as a result of which, all charges against Jacquees were dropped, along with the case itself.
Jacquees, whose full name is Rodriquez Jacquees Broadnax, was arrested in March this year for allegedly driving without a seat belt, refusing to obey a police officer and disorderly conduct. There was even video footage of the singer grinning away to glory even when he was being violently yanked by the police officers who were present during his arrest, before being taken away in a cruiser.
Jacquees' lawyers Nina Tarafa and Ricardo Corona said on hearing the judgement that, although the incident followed by the arrest was quite unfortunate for the singer, they are happy with the final outcome since justice was finally served.
At the time of Jacquees' arrest, there was a lot of outrage on social media by his fans and supporters over the way cops manhandled the singer while they were in the process of arresting him. However, once the whole party reached the police station, everything seemed to go back to normal, says TMZ.
