Contrary to an article in the New York Daily News, Bobby Shmurda is still locked up.
Yesterday, the paper reported Shmurda had posted bail of $2 million. But Bobby's lawyer has told Complex this isn't the case, and his client remains detained on drugs and guns charged.
However, another part of The Daily News's reporting appears to be true: Shmurda plans on suing the NYPD for false arrest.
The suit concerns an arrest while he was at his friend's Brooklyn home on June 3, 2014 -- not the December 2014 Manhattan arrest Bobby awaits trial on.
"When one of the occupants opened the door a slight bit to see who was there, Officer Douglas Corso and other police officers kicked in the door and illegally entered the residence without a search warrant," the suit filed Friday in Brooklyn Federal Court. The cops claimed Pollard tried to hide a handgun inside a couch. Pollard, 21, claims that while the cops were allegedly ransacking the apartment, they taunted him by "chanting the lyrics to his chart-topping songs," the suit states.While those particular gun charges were ultimately dismissed, Shmurda says he suffered permanent "nervous shock and mental anguish" as a result of the arrest.
His trial on the charges from his December 2014 arrest is slated to begin May 11th.
