Besides court officials, nobody really believes Bobby Shmurda to be the leader of a violent gang. He just seems a little too happy-go-lucky to be plotting out rumbles with The Orphans and The Baseball Furies. And his latest arrest while incarcerated reiterates the point that the “Hot Boy” rapper’s life of crime was limited to records.
According to The New York Post, the “promoting criminal contraband” charge Bobby caught last week also affected his 18-year-old girlfriend after the two tried to smuggle a shank past prison officials.
The 20-year-old Shmurda, whose real name is Ackquille Pollard, was busted June 21 after a guard allegedly saw Kimberly Rousseau, 18, pull a black latex glove balloon wrapped in black electrical tape out of her bra and hand it to him. The guard opened the balloon and found a “sharpened metal object” according to a criminal complaint.
Rousseau reportedly plead guilty to contraband charge and an additional charge of criminal possession of a weapon.Although his and hers charges sound like key components to a rap song, I have no idea why Bobby just didn’t whittle a shank out of his toothbrush like other jailbirds.
Currently, Shmurda’s trial is set to begin on October 25 and he remains in jail under $2 million bail
