Zino told AllHipHop’s Chuck “Jigsaw” Creekmur that the altercation that went public is old, but the charges are new.
“I was kind of arguing with the guy she was with at the time. Long story short, the case was like two years ago and somebody put that old video up and it got me kind of arguing with him,” he said.
He explained that he missed a virtual court appearance in April because he had covid and that prompted the new warrant for his arrest. on to say that following his arrest in April, he was supposed to attend a court meeting via zoom call.
Today, he turned himself in and AllHipHop has the exclusive footage of it as it happened.
