It looks like four members of the late Mac Dre’s Thizz Entertainment team are facing a major legal battle ahead of them. Thizz co-owner/rapper J-Diggs and three entourage members were recently arrested in Hawaii on charges of assault and attempted murder.
According to a recent statement from Diggs, he and his entourage got into a scuffle with security personnel in Hawaii after the crew was forcibly removed from the Big Kahuna Bar and Grill. Diggs says after they left the bar, security continued to harass them, leading a brawl in which one man’s throat was cut.
“Me and three of my entourage got kicked out of Big Kahuna Bar and Grill. The security punched of my dudes in the jaw as the police were pulling up, so we went across the street and posted on the strip,” he explained. “Four large island security guards came across the street demanding us to get off the strip and that’s when it turned into an all-out brawl on Waikiki beach…I was charged with slapping and beating a 6 foot 4, 320 pound security [guard] and his friend with a board…onother dude[‘s] throat is cut…and three out of the four went to the hospital with major head back and neck wounds. The dudes wrote statements against us and we were all charged.”
Despite eye witness reports saying that Diggs and company were acting in self-defense, the four men are being held in jail at $150,000 bail each. Diggs had been promoting his latest album Izm 101 with Philthy Rich prior to the incident.
