Rapper Pooh Shiesty may catch a huge break over claims he shot a security guard.
The rapper was accused of shooting a security guard in the ankle, after he allegedly lost $40,000 in cash after his appearance.
Footage of the rapper walking through brandishing a gun went viral, and Pooh Shiesty was eventually arrested and charged with aggravated battery, and held without bond.
According to his lawyer Bradford Cohen, the security guard who claims he was shot now says he can’t even remember giving his initial statement to the police.
The security guard named Frivin For, said in a sworn deposition, that he was on the powerful painkiller Dilaudid the night of the shooting.
According to For, he can’t recall Pooh Shiesty aiming, or shooting at him.
The security guard says he does not want to press charges against Pooh Shiesty and he’s apparently refusing the cooperate with Florida authorities.
Although he could still be prosecuted for aggravated battery, Cohen says the new revelation is at least enough to grant Pooh Shiesty bond.
