Tekashi 6ix9ine’s manager — who goes by the nickname Shottie — reportedly turned himself in to New York City authorities on Wednesday (November 7). According to TMZ, Shottie surrendered to the NYPD for allegedly escalating a violent confrontation between 6ix9ine’s entourage and his label head’s security.
The incident occurred at a midtown restaurant on October 26, the same day the polarizing rapper was sentenced to probation — rather than jail — in his 2015 child sex assault case. He and his crew were out celebrating the verdict when a scuffle broke out.
Shottie was allegedly one of three of 6ix9ine’s men who got violent, striking music exec Elliot Grainge’s bodyguards with a chair. Eyewitnesses told police Shottie said, “I’m going to violate you both with gunshots.”
One of Grainge’s bodyguard saw someone in 6ix9ine’s crew reach for something in their waistband. Consequently, he fired his weapon and struck an unidentified member of 6ix9ine’s crew in the abdomen. Shottie then fled the scene.
Two men — 33-year-old Zachary Bunce and 29-year-old Faheem Walter — were arrested shortly after the shooting. They were reportedly hit with gang assault charges.
6ix9ine has been at the center of several altercations. Most recently, he and YG affiliate Slim 400 got into it in Long Beach.
