Waka Flocka Flame's House Raided, Gucci Mane Held In Custody
UPDATE: A raid on the two 1017 Brick Squad members results in two minor arrests and Gucci Mane is released without being charged.
After a raid on Waka Flocka Flame’s Georgia home which saw Gucci Mane taken away in handcuffs, TMZ reports Debbie Antney told the celebrity news site that authorities are looking for her son, whose real name is Juaquin Malphurs. TMZ cited an unconfirmed source stating authorities were looking for evidence of prostitution, gangs and drugs, while marijuana and weapons are likely the cause of Gucci’s arrest. It should be noted that local police haven’t confirmed any of the claims.
The 1017 Brick Squad—primarily Gucci and Waka Flocka—have had multiple run-ins with law enforcement. Gucci Mane was arrested and later released on a traffic violation in November after the case was dropped “for want of persecution.” He previously served time for a probation violation and a 2005 shooting, which was later ruled to be in self-defense.
Waka Flocka Flame was also detained back in March for a probation violation stemming from a 2006 charge for possession of a sawed-off shotgun.
Update (12/17): Henry County Police say the raid on Waka Flocka Flame’s rented home resulted in two arrests for possession of a small amount of marijuana. Johan Michael Antney and Tyrell Raylon Mingo were charged for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana. As reported earlier, Gucci Mane was present at the scene, was handcuffed and taken into custody, and ultimately released without being charged. Henry County Police Major Jason Bolton told the Atlanta Journal Constitution a Kal Tech .223 caliber sub gun and a Taurus .40 caliber semi were found at the scene.
