Police have arrested a 2nd man in connection to the murder of rapper XXXTentacion. And, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office, they already had him in custody before bringing him up on murder charges.
22-year-old Michael Boatwright of Fort Lauderdale has been charged with first-degree murder in the broad daylight killing last month. 20-year-old XXX was leaving a motorsports store on June 18th when two masked men walked up on his car, robbed him and then shot him to death.
According to CNN, Boatwright was previously arrested on drug charges. Detectives then served him with an arrest warrant in the rapper's death. He had already been in custody at the county's main jail.
The site reports:
Inmate records show that, in addition to the murder charge, Boatwright is pending trial on charges of cannabis possession; possession of cocaine with intent to sell; manufacture or deliver; possession of the drug, flakka; battery on a specified employee; resisting/obstruction without violence; and probation violations, among other charges.
He is being held without bond, according to online records. It was not immediately clear if he had obtained legal representation.
Last month, police charged 22-year-old Dedrick Williams of Pompano Beach with first degree murder as well. Police are also looking for 22-year-old Robert Allen"to find out what he knows about the murder." It's reported Allen is only a person of interest in the murder. However, he is also the subject of a felony warant charging him with flakka possession, carrying a concealed firearm, and probation violation. Sheesh!
Glad the are making progress in getting the men responsible for taking XXX's life off the streets.
In legal news...
Young Thug's former manager Manny Halley is laughing all the way to the bank.
The manager - who has managed folks like Keyshia Cole and Nicki Minaj - just won a 7-figure settlement against the rapper's financial team in a defamation suit.
According to reports, Manny pulled the trigger on a lawsuit against Thugga's financial team Davie Weise & Associates after David Weise & Associates reportedly sent an email alleging Manny spent up to $200,000 in unauthorized charges. However, that wasn't the case. Manny charged that money for Thugga's private jets that he rode during his concert tour. He said the company was out to get him after he tried to get them fired for messing up Young Thug's fiances.
Well, it's all over now since they were able to come to a 7-figure settlement. They agreed there was no criminal conduct and chalked it up as a misunderstanding.
