Rapper OMB Peezy was arrested on Monday (March 1) and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during commission.
According to SayCheeseTV, police believe OMB — real name LeParis Dade — is tied to the shooting that took place at Roddy Ricch and 42 Dugg’s video set last month. A photo of OMB in court wearing a mask and jailhouse jumpsuit is currently making the rounds, but Fulton County jail inmate records show he hasn’t been released since appearing in court.
The offense date is listed as February 21, the same day as the shooting, and a bond has been set at $60,000.

Three people were shot and two hospitalized on that Sunday afternoon, although their injuries weren’t life threatening. Officers responded to shots fired at a scrap yard on Wells Street around 4 p.m. local time and discovered a man grazed by bullets. He was assessed at the scene by Grady EMS, while the two other men who were shot drove themselves to Grady Memorial Hospital.
Both Roddy and Dugg addressed the incident shortly after the news broke to assure their fans they weren’t injured during the melee.
Dugg wrote on Instagram, “Appreciate the concern. although I did not get SHOT!!!!” while Roddy offered, “ain’t nobody shoot at me. we all good. im just tryna feed the streets.” Until OMB’s arrest, his presence at the video shoot was unknown. His role in the incident has yet to be divulged, but cries of “Free Peezy” have already started flying on social media.
This is a developing story.
