Bobby Shmurda’s been involved in an uphill legal battle since being arrested in June of 2014 on weapon/drug charges. Yesterday, the New York Daily News reported that Shmurda, real name Ackquille Pollard, is fed up with the way the police are treating him and is suing the NYPD for false arrest.
Shmurda appeared in court yesterday (April 29) in order to convince the judge that he’s been unfairly targeted by police. The lawsuit reportedly claims that while at a friend’s residence in Rockaway Park, “Officer Douglas Corso and other police officers kicked in the door and illegally entered the residence without a search warrant.” On the other hand, police are claiming that Shmurda stashed a firearm in the crack of a couch.
And while the Daily News also reported that he’s finally found that $2 million bail after months of offers and appeals, Complex confirmed with his lawyer that the “Hot Nigga” rapper is still in custody. If this upcoming trial in June wasn’t already gonna be a firestarter, it’s gonna reach critical mass soon.
