(AllHipHop News) Last week, it was reported that on Wednesday (June 26), Nipsey Hussle, was arrested in Burbank, CA. Following the conflicting misinformation surrounding the “Don’t Take Days Off” MC’s arrest, his lawyer, Mark Bledstein, has issued an illuminating statement. Within it he claims that Nipsey wasn’t driving before his arrest; he also asserts that Nipsey has a codeine prescription due to “a severe strep throat condition,” this according to HotNewHipHop.
Bledstein insisted, “My client, Ermias Asghedom, has a severe strep throat condition from performing multiple shows monthly and was prescribed cough syrup as a remedy. He is currently in the final stages of the recording process of his new album Victory Lap, and couldn’t project his voice without treatment. The night of his arrest [he] was not driving but parked in front of a recording studio in Burbank when he was approached by the police.”
Working to clear his client’s name, the statement concluded with, “He willingly allowed the officers to search his car and told them where the cough syrup was. After running his name they found an outstanding traffic warrant that he was taken into custody for and cited out for later that night. I have contacted the courts and began the exoneration process for the cough syrup simply by providing his prescription. He is doing great and excited about his upcoming album release.”
Has the truth finally surfaced?
