Another Problem Arises for Tekashi69!
On Monday, officials revealed that 5 members of the security crew of Tekashi69, including a retired NYPD officer, have been charged with theft and illicit impersonation after they were caught lying. They claimed that a man who was filming the rapper jeopardized them by showing a gun. Cy Vance Jr., Manhattan District Attorney said in a press release that a celebrity entourage is not a police department, and Manhattan is not the Wild West.
According to the DA, the 3 security details of the SUV then followed the defendant and his girlfriend for nearly 20 blocks at an increased speed with sirens and flickering lights. Daniel Laperuta, a former NYPD detective and a member of Tekashi 69’s security team showed a retired NYPD Member of Service card to the police.
