Just hours after NYC drill affiliate Eli Fross was arrested on attempted murder charges for a shooting in Times Square, Brooklyn favorite Sheff G was arrested on a second degree felony weapons charge.
Sheff, whose real name is Michael Williams, was taken into custody the same day as Fross, but the news of Sheff’s arrest wasn’t made public until DJ Akademiks shared the news on his Twitter and IG, which prompted many fans to reply in the comments to “free him”.
Sheff was just arrested for gun possession earlier this year after a traffic stop in Brooklyn and served a year and four months behind bars back in 2015 for a felony gun charge.
Due to his previous record and the nature of the current charge, a judge ruled to keep Sheff in custody until his next court hearing on August 18.
