Rapper Gunplay (pictured) turned himself in to Miami authorities on Wednesday afternoon, after a warrant was issued in May for his arrest involving armed robbery with a firearm charges, reports TMZ.
Gunplay, whose actual name is Richard Morales, was being investigated by police for his possible involvement in an armed robbery that took place earlier this year at a tax preparation office located in Miami-Dade County. The robbery was filmed and Gunplay is viewed on the video, toting a gun.
Co-defendant Randy Jones, 36, was already brought in to custody by police investigators.
Gunplay recently made headlines when he became embroiled in a melee that broke outside the BET Awards in Atlanta earlier this month involving hip-hop mogul 50 Cent and his crew. The fracas was videotaped and Gunplay is viewed getting his head slammed in to a metal barricade. The performer did manage to defend himself but he was clearly outnumbered. He was also pepper sprayed by police during the fighting.
Watch the fight here:
Following the madness that occurred at the award show, Gunplay’s attorney advised his client to turn himself in to police due to the much-publicized riot that took place, which got the attention of authorities flagged his outstanding warrant with.
In the meantime, Gunplay can expect to stay put in a cell for now since bond is not offered in armed robbery cases.
