Jury Finds Plies Civilly Liable For 2006 Shooting

(AllHipHop News)A jury has found Florida rapper Plies and his brother Ronell Levatte civilly liable for a 2006 shooting inside of a nightclub that left seven people injured.

The rapper has been ordered to pay $200,000 to a group of men who were injured during the shooting, which occurred in July of 2006 in a Gainesville, Florida nightclub.

Plies’ brother, also known as “Big Gates” and members of his entourage open fired during a dispute with the promoter over Plies’ allotted time to perform.

His brother served three years in prison for the shooting.

Plies, born Algernod Lanier Washington, was charged with misdemeanor possession of a concealed weapon and received probation for the incident.

The victims accused Plies of using the incident to bolster his credibility, and ultimately his career, which the jury agreed with, after seven days of testimony.

According to Plies’ lawyer, the case was almost settled of court, for four times the $200,000 in damages.

    AHH got struck by the dreaded auto-correct. I think that’s supposed to read “Plies’ allotted time to perform”. See how easy that was, AHH.

    But who couldn’t see this being nothing but a loss for Plies. It’s folks getting paid big bucks for getting hit with soccer balls, fireworks, and speakers. All the jury had to hear was gunshots and it was a wrap.

    If Plies crew, did the shooting , over Plies stage time….then Plies is liable.

    Imagine if a cop did something wrong, like mistake a wallet for a gun & shoot a blackman 40+ times….the city will get sued, because he was acting on behalf of the city.

    Same logic with “Flies”. lol

    Same with an entourage…..if they on the payroll.

    Thugs in Hip Hop?

    How else are non rapping , non dj’ing , non dancing , etc., dudes in “Flies” camp gonna earn stripes?
