Rapper Pooh Shiesty faces life in prison for allegedly shooting man in buttocks in Florida robbery
Rolling Stone reports Pooh Shiesty is facing life in prison for his alleged role in an armed robbery in Florida.
The “Back in Blood” rapper, whose real name is Lontrell Williams, is accused of shooting a man in the buttocks during a October 2020 hotel encounter that included a rented McLaren, drugs and high-end sneakers.
When Williams fled the scene with two others, a Louis Vuitton bag stuffed with $40,912 in cash fell out of the driver’s seat of the McLaren; investigators say the serial numbers on one of the recovered bills matched a $100 bill flashed on Williams’ Instagram account days before the robbery.
In a separate incident, Williams, 21, is also accused of pulling a semi-automatic pistol from his waistband and waving it around the King of Diamonds club in Miami last May, allegedly firing a shot that hit a security guard in the ankle.
A trial for a four-count federal indictment is scheduled to begin Oct. 25.
