Blueface has been arrested and is facing a felony robbery charge in Las Vegas – following a court appearance for an entirely different matter.
According to documents obtained by TMZ, the “Thotiana” rapper was taken into police custody on Wednesday (June 7) while appearing in court for a preliminary hearing for his attempted murder charges. Little details on the matter are available, and even Blue’s lawyers are in the dark. However, they told the outlet: “We look forward to vigorously defending him on both cases.”
Blueface’s attempted murder charge stems from his night at the Euphoric Gentlemen’s Club in Las Vegas on October 8. The alleged target had apparently joked about Blueface chatting with “some females in a cheap vehicle.”
The L.A. rapper didn’t like the joke, and members of his entourage allegedly hit the man “multiple times.” The man later returned to the club in his truck and asked the crew: “Who hit me?!” after which security footage allegedly captured Blueface pulling out his gun and firing shots at the vehicle as he drove away.
The man was left with a bullet graze on his left hand and a truck riddled with bullet marks, according to police.
While Blueface has maintained his innocence, a man claiming to be the owner of the Euphoric Gentlemen’s Club said the establishment was forced to close because of the “gang-related activities” Blueface brought to the venue. He also wants to see the rapper either spend “the rest of his life in prison” or “pay us until the day he leaves this earth.”
Blueface was arrested and booked into Clark County Detention Center for attempted murder before appearing in court on November 16. He was later released from police custody on a $50,000 bail.
While the case remains ongoing, Blueface is now also facing a separate civil lawsuit in connection with the shootout. According to CBS 8 News, Jasmine Brooks filed suit against him in March for allegedly injuring her in the melee.
In the lawsuit, Brooks claims she “sustained injuries to her body, specifically her face as a result of defendants’ inadequate, unreasonable and egregiously deficient security of the property.” She’s reportedly seeking a jury trial and more than $15,000 in damages.
