Fabolous Hit With Multiple Weapons Charges, Investigated In Robbery Of Boston Celtic

Fabolous and three

men have been hit with multiple weapons charges, after an early morning shooting

in a parking garage near Sean "Diddy" Combs’ Justin’s restaurant on

Tuesday (Oct. 17).Fabolous,

born John Jackson, 28, Rascharm Davis, 29, Percell German, 23 and Kevin Bess,

18, were each charged with five counts of criminal possession of a weapon today

(Oct. 18).The

charges stem from an incident early Tuesday morning, when an unknown assailant

approached the rapper and shot him once in the thigh as he was leaving Justin’s.

As the

rapper was being rushed to the hospital, police stopped his 2005 Dodge Magnum

for allegedly running a red-light. The

vehicle, which is registered to Ghetto Fabolous Inc., was being driven by Davis.

Police

said they noticed Fabolous in the backseat, suffering from a gunshot wound.A

search of the rapper’s SUV produced two guns, a .380 semiautomatic and a .40 caliber

firearm, found inside a front compartment in the vehicle. Both

weapons were loaded and police said the serial numbers were scratched off the

.380 semiautomatic firearm.Fabolous

was taken to Bellvue Hospital and treated for his wounds after the shooting, while

the other three men were taken to a local police precinct. Fabolous

posted $15,000 bail and was released. According to reports, the rapper is due

back in court on Friday (Oct. 27) to answer the charges. Meanwhile,

police are also investigating a possible connection between the shooting and the

robbery of Boston Celtics guard Sebastian Telfair the same evening. According

to reports, a necklace worth at least $50,000, was ripped from Telfair’s neck

outside of the restaurant. Telfair,

who is also the cousin of New York Knicks guard Stephon Marbury, is also from

Brooklyn NY. Shortly

after Telfair was robbed, Fabolous was shot. Yesterday, Telfair looked at four

lineups with one that included Fabolous, but failed to identify the chain snatcher.

Police

continue to investigate Fabolous’ shooting.
