According to the Orlando Sun-Sentinel, NLE told the cops that he jumped over a tow yard gate because he was trying to retrieve a watch from inside a vehicle that had been towed to a secured lot. He was being held Monday morning at the Broward Sheriff’s Office in Fort Lauderdale on a $4,500 bond.
“During a tow inventory of the vehicle, a Glock 27 with an extended magazine (# BELM588) and a AK-47 Draco pistol (# PMO-16706-19RO) were clearly visible in the backseat of the Ford Expedition. The firearms were readily accessible to Bryson, Matlock and Thony Coleman who were all seating in the rear seat of the Ford Expedition. The firearms were fully loaded with a round in the chamber,” the affidavit obtained by XXL reads.
The affidavit adds that none of the three men had a “valid concealed carry weapon permit or were of age (21).”
NLE Choppa’s “Shotta Flow” peaked on the Billboard charts at No. 36 in 2019 and “Walk Em Down” reached No. 38 last year.
