MIAMI, FL – Bandman Kevo received some positive news on the legal front this week when it comes to his June arrest. The Chicago native took to Twitter on Tuesday (July 13) to express relief that the charges from his 2021 Miami gun case have been dropped.
“Charges drop God is good,” he wrote. “Y’all know if I pointed a gun at a police officer my black ass would have been dead on site.”
SayCheeseTV caught up with Bandman Kevo to recount the altercation with police and gave credit to powerful Florida attorney Mark Eiglarsh for getting Kevo out of the trick predicament as a citizen with a previous record.
Kevo explained that the police attempted to pull him over for a routine traffic stop in Miami but he took them on a high-speed chase and ended up crashing his Maybach.
He ended up being booked on five separate charges ranging from gun possession by a convicted felon to using a firearm while committing a felony, assault of a police officer, resisting arrest and tampering with evidence.
The “Uber” rapper bonded out shortly after being arrested. Bandman Kevo has been off probation for about a year. In 2016, Kevo was sentenced to serve 22 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to a bank fraud scheme where conspirators use social media to advertise quick cash returns in exchange for debit cards and pin numbers.
