Alabama rapper OMB Peezy has been arrested on charges related to a recent shooting that took place on the film set for a new Roddy Ricch and 42 Dugg music video.
According to Pitchfork, Peezy (real name LeParis Dade) was arrested on March 1. He faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, records from the Atlanta Police Department reportedly showed. He is currently held in custody in Fulton County Jail with a bond posted at $60,000.
The shooting, which occurred in downtown Atlanta, was first reported on February 21. Local police said that three men were injured at the scene and they arrested one man for drug possessions. Neither Roddy Ricch or 42 Dugg were hurt in the shooting, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
After the news surfaced, both Ricch and Dugg confirmed on social media that they were doing fine. In an Instagram Live session with Lil Baby, Dugg told the fellow rapper that he was nowhere near the shooting. “Y’all stop with that fake shit, man. We ain’t been around no gun shooting, none of that,” Dugg said.
He added: “Real talk, man. We good…Thanks for the love, though. I appreciate the love, though.”
