Pooh Shiesty’s year has seen many ups and downs, as the rapper saw himself rising to become a star of Gucci Mane’s 1017 Records, and also landed on the 2021 XXL Freshman Class cover for his run. However, an alleged shooting in Miami has been looming over the rapper, as he was arrested for the incident. Shiesty turned himself into the police for the incident, and since then, the security guard who accused him of shooting has recanted their statement to the police. However, the rapper was reportedly denied bail despite the guard taking back their statement.
The Miami Herald noted the security guard—Frivin Dor, was not cooperating with the authorities after being hit in the ankle with a bullet. The judge on the rapper’s case denied his bond, and now Pooh Shiesty will have to stay behind bars until July 22, 2021, when his preliminary hearing takes place.
According to the prosecutor in the case, a “federal detainer” was placed on Pooh Shiesty for another pending state criminal case. The case they’re referencing is another alleged shooting that went down in October 2020 for a drug deal that went left. As of now, Pooh Shiesty is facing up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
