XXXTentacion’s 4th Murder Suspect Pleads “Not Guilty” After Arrest

The fourth and final suspect in XXXTentacion’s murder case has finally been arrested.

Nearly two months after his involvement in XXXTentacion’s shooting death, 20-year-old Trayvon Newsome was arrested in Broward County, Florida on Tuesday (Aug. 7), according to online jail records.

Newsome was booked on two charges: murder in the first degree and robbery with a deadly weapon. He turned himself in through his lawyer after being at large for several weeks, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Department.

Investigators believe Newsome was one of the two trigger men in XXX’s June 18th murder. The other alleged gunman, 22-year-old Michael Boatwright, and the remaining two murder suspects—22yo Dedrick Williams and 22yo Robert Allen—are also behind bars.

According to documents obtained by Complex, Newsome pleaded not guilty to his charges and also filed for a demand for discovery, which is standard procedure and means the state of Florida must provide any and all evidence related to the case to his attorney.

With Newsome’s not guilty plea, all four of the suspects have affirmed their innocence.

Additionally, Michael Boatwright will reportedly undergo a mental examination before proceeding to trial, and if he is found unfit to go to trial, he could be involuntarily hospitalized and receive prescribed treatment.

On June 18th, XXXTentacion withdrew $50,000 in cash from the bank and put it in a Louis Vuitton bag. As he was leaving RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, FL, the four suspects attempted to rob him, and when he refused to hand the bag over, they shot and killed him and ran off with the money.

Broward Sheriff Scott Israel called the incident a “tragic shooting” and vowed to “bring those who did it to justice.”

XXXTentacion’s family, friend and fans should be able to rest a little easier now knowing that all four of his alleged killers are now behind bars with murder charges.

Third XXXTentacion Murder Suspect Arrested in Georgia, Extradited to Florida

Three down, one to go! The third XXXTentacion murder suspect is in custody, and it’s all thanks to U.S. Marshals.

The U.S. Marshals’ Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force located 22-year-old Robert Allen at his sister’s home in Eastman, Georgia Wednesday (Jul. 25), hundreds of miles from Broward County, Florida, where he lives and where XXXTentacion was shot and killed last month. Authorities said Allen’s sister cooperated with officers when they showed up to arrest him.

Robert Allen’s mugshot from Dodge County, Georgia

Allen, who was indicted on first-degree murder and armed robbery charges last week along with his three accomplices—Dedrick Williams, Michael Boatwright and Trayvon Newsome—was booked into the Dodge County Jail and was extradited to Broward County early Friday (Jul. 27).

Dedrick Williams and Michael Boatwright are currently in custody in Broward County while Trayvon Newsome, who cops have named as one of the “trigger men” in XXX’s murder, is still at large.

Robert Allen was initially identified by police as a person of interest after he was captured on surveillance video outside RIVA Motorsports, the motorcycle dealership where XXXTentacion was moments before his murder.

Allen was also named in a felony warrant charging him with flakka possession, carrying a concealed firearm and probation violation, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

Offset Arrested in Georgia for Felony Gun Possession

Offset was arrested in Georgia today after cops allegedly discovered at least one gun on him while searching his vehicle during a traffic stop.

According to TMZ, the Migos rapper was traveling near Atlanta Friday (Jul. 20) when the vehicle he was in was pulled over for tinted windows. Police searched the vehicle and discovered at least one gun. This is far from good news for Offset, who is a convicted felon currently on probation.

It isn’t clear what exactly Offset was charged with and whether the car he was driving was his, but being found with a gun as a convicted felon usually doesn’t end well for most people. TMZ reported that neither Offset’s wife Cardi or their newborn daughter Kulture were in the SUV at the time of his arrest.

This arrest couldn’t come at a worse timing for Offset, whose tour with Migos and Drake is set to kick off next Thursday (Jul. 26) in Salt Lake City, UT.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates…

Jim Jones Arrested for Drugs & Gun Possession After Police Chase on Georgia Highway

Rapper Jim Jones was arrested in Georgia after leading police on a chase that ended with him getting popped for possession of drugs and a firearm, TMZ reports.

Cops attempted to pull over a grey Mercedes SUV Jim was riding in with three other people in Cowetta County, GA Thursday night (Jun. 21). According to police,  the grey Mercedes SUV was traveling south on I-85 and reportedly drifted into the left-hand emergency lane several times.

Instead of stopping for police, the car accelerated, which sparked a chase, the Sheriff’s Department said. The car eventually stopped after running into a deputy’s vehicle. Jones was NOT driving at the time. The “We Fly High” rapper was simply a passenger in the backseat.

Here’s exactly what happened, per the Newnan Times-Herald:

When Investigator Jeremy Wood with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office pulled up beside the SUV, the interior of the car appeared to be filled with smoke and the smell of marijuana was apparent after Wood rolled down his window, according to Chief Deputy James Yarbrough with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office.

A traffic stop was conducted on the SUV at exit 35, where the driver of the SUV reportedly rolled through the stop sign at the bottom of the exit ramp before pulling over on the side of Hwy 29.

While officers were exiting their vehicle, the driver of the SUV accelerated and led police on a short chase that ended on Griffin Street near Frazier’s, where Wood pulled in front of the SUV to stop it and was intentionally struck by the driver, Yarbrough said.

The occupants of the SUV were then ordered out of the car and to place their hands on the roof.

Jones said he had told the driver of the car, , to pull over, but stated she was acting “incoherent,” according to the report.

After searching the vehicle, deputies found marijuana, 23 Oxycodone pills, Percocets, vape cartridges, THC oil, two loaded pistols and $148 cash, which Jim called “just petty cash.” According to cops, of the two guns they found, one of them was stolen.

Ana Rajnee Miles, Darnell Maurice Wright, and Jamal Rajhun Smith were arrested along with Jim Jones.

Because no one admitted to the possession of any of the items, although Jones said he had a prescription for the Oxy and Percs, everyone was arrested.

Jones, who also reportedly admitted to smoking marijuana but denied that the weed found in the car was his, told the cops that he told the driver—identified as 23-year-old Ana Rajnee Miles—to pull over, but she was acting “incoherent.”

Jim Jones, whose real name is Joseph Guillermo Jones, was charged with three felonies: possession of a stolen gun, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, and possession of narcotics. The 41-year-old rapper was also hit with a misdemeanor charge for the prescription pills not being in their original container. He was later released on $7,000 bail.

As for Jones’ friends, Miles was charged with aggravated assault, fleeing/attempting to elude police, theft by receiving stolen property, narcotics possession, marijuana possession, dangerous drugs to be kept in original container, aggressive driving and failure to maintain lane.

31-year-old Darnell Maurice Right and 32-year-old Jamal Rajhun Smith, were also charged with narcotics possession, marijuana possession and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Smith was also charged with theft by receiving stolen property.

XXXTentacion Murder Suspect Arrested (MUGSHOT)

The man accused of murdering XXXTentacion has been arrested.

TMZ first broke the news that 22-year-old Dedrick D. Williams was taken into custody by the Broward County Sheriff’s Department Wednesday (Jun. 20) and was booked for first-degree murder for his alleged involvement in the shooting death of XXXTentacion.

During a vigil in South Florida Wednesday night, X’s mother reportedly told family and friends she had gotten word from police that they had XXX’s alleged murder in custody.

Someone at the vigil mentioned that there was a chase on highway I-95, which ended with cops arresting Williams for X’s murder.

Williams was arrested for operating a vehicle without a valid driver’s license, violating his probation, and, of course, allegedly murdering XXXTentacion. His charges include first-degree murder and grand theft auto. He’s currently being held in Broward County’s main jail facility with no bond for his murder charge, though his driving without a license charge has a $25 bail.

You can see Williams’ charges in detail via his arrest report below:

According to the Miami Herald, Williams was in the middle of serving five years probation on four counts of grand theft auto when he was arrested Wednesday.

TMZ reports Williams, who has at least 11 felonies on his record, has been arrested before for crimes including cocaine possession, weapons possession, domestic violence, and aggravated assault with a firearm. During an incident in 2014, he allegedly held a gun to his girlfriend’s head.

According to an Instagram profile with the username “_tattoomanchucky” that appears to belong to Williams, he is a tattoo artist. Coincidentally, a June 5th post is captioned: “Thank God I ain’t dead or behind bars.”

His most recent post was around 1 p.m. EST Wednesday afternoon, not too long before his arrest.

XXXTentacion was shot and killed Monday afternoon (Jun. 18) as he sat in his car after leaving RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Florida.

The shooting happened in broad daylight in front of several witnesses, who reported seeing at least two masked men fleeing the scene. Eyewitnesses said the rapper was shot in the neck and died instantly.

No word yet on whether police know who the other men involved in the shooting are.

Kellen Winslow Jr. Arrested on Rape & Kidnapping Charges, Faces Life in Prison

Former NFL player Kellen Winslow Jr. has been arrested for the second time in the past seven days, and his latest arrest includes some very serious charges.

According to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, Winslow was arrested in San Diego Thursday afternoon (Jun. 14) on an outstanding warrant and was hit with a whopping NINE criminal charges, including kidnapping with intent to commit rape, forcible rape, forcible sodomy, burglary, indecent exposure and more. A search warrant was executed at his home, Fox 8 reported.

His total charges are as follows:

  • 2 counts of residential burglary
  • 2 counts of kidnapping with intent to commit rape
  • 2 counts of forcible rape
  • 1 count of forcible sodomy
  • 1 count of forcible oral copulation
  • 1 count of indecent exposure

If Winslow ends up being convicted of all charges, he faces up to life in prison.

Last Friday (Jun. 8), Winslow was arrested and charged with first-degree burglary for an alleged incident that reportedly happened at a mobile home park in Encinitas, California.

Winslow said at the time that he was not burglarizing the home in question; he was “house hunting for a home for his mother-in-law,” according to Fox 8. He was held on $50,000 bond, which he posted. He’ll be formally charged during an arraignment on Friday (Jun. 15).

34-year-old Kellen Winslow Jr. played in the NFL between 2004 and 2013. He earned more than $30 million during his 10-year NFL career as a tight end for the Cleveland Browns, the Tamba Bay Bucs, the New England Patriots and the NY Jets.

This isn’t Winslow’s first run-in with the law. He was arrested back in 2013 for allegedly masturbating in a Target parking lot after cops say they found vaseline and synthetic marijuana in his car.

Winslow denied the masturbation allegations (he said he was changing his clothes), but he was hit with a third-degree charge of possession of a controlled substance. He later struck a plea deal and got the drug charge dropped.

Man Who Threw Homeless Man’s Belongings Into Lake Arrested for Robbery

2Sintay assaulted another man, stole his phone and took off running with it.

Another video related to the incident recorded by another man, Matt Nelson, shows Sintay returning to the lake and trying to remove items that fell into the lake, according to Sintay.

Sintay explained to Nelson that he’s always throwing away trash in the area, and he considered the man’s belongings “trash.” Asked why he was in the lake taking stuff out, Sintay claimed he was “trying to do the f**king right thing” because he didn’t want to “pollute the lake.”

Sintay then acknowledged that he’d seen the destitute man in the area before and that he knew what he was throwing away was the man’s stuff, but he didn’t care because he still considered it trash.

“He’s been a resident here for a long time,” the videographer said, referring to “Drew,” who didn’t appear to be in the area at the time. “He has no place to have his stuff, so just leave him alone,” a passerby said to the group. “He’s not bothering anybody.”

When Nelson asked Sintay what his name was (he hadn’t been identified at the time of the recording), instead of answering, Sintay—who noticed that he was being recorded—appeared to assault Nelson and grabbed his phone before taking off with it. You can actually hear Nelson crying out for help in the video and saying that he’s being attacked.

Unbeknownst to Sintay, the video was filmed on Facebook Live, so it was posted (and remains online) even though Nelson no longer has access to his phone, which was stolen by Sintay. Watch above.

According to Nelson, Sintay did not return his phone and he had to go to the emergency room after being injured from Sintay’s assault.

Nelson wrote on Facebook:

“Is this that same dude? UPDATE: Thank you, loved ones! And thanks especially to my amazing nephew, Theo! Henry and his “friend” assaulted me multiple times, I was also dragged by their moving vehicle and hit a few times in the head, but I’m safe now. Still do not have my phone. Please keep calling it and if Henry picks up, I’d like it back. I’ll continue to share the story and folks should feel free to reach out to me here or via email.

“QUICK UPDATE #2: Thankful for the ER staff who assessed my injuries and thankful for my hard head! Even more thankful for the kind and loving friends and family who have been looking out for me and taking care of me. And, thankful to my community, who knows that Oakland can be a place where the dignity, safety and full human rights of everyone can be defended, protected, and affirmed. I know we have a long way to go, but I also know we have no choice but to get there…onward!

“BRIEF UPDATE #3: I am recovering from a mild concussion, some cuts and bruises, and many sore and strained muscles. Your love, food, joy, outrage, companionship, laughter, rides, check-ins, insight, and incredible displays of compassion have helped me heal and prepared me for the work ahead. Deepest thanks to everyone who has reached out with love and support! You have taken care of me, and for this, I am deeply grateful.

“And let’s not lose focus: HOUSING IS A HUMAN RIGHT. While my wounds will heal, the deep wounds of inequality and injustice in #Oakland will fester unless we dramatically improve how we treat our neighbors who are unhoused, unsheltered, or on the verge of losing their housing. This is a moral and cultural issue and a reflection of our values as much (or more) than it is a policy and civil code issue. And our values and morals must guide our political decisions. We can do much better by our people. And to achieve this, we need you and the love you’ve shown me to lead us forward to a town rooted in full dignity and human rights for all.”
