Bay Harbor Islands, FL – Burgeoning rapper Pooh Shiesty was involved in a shootout outside of a Bay Harbor Islands condominium last October that resulted in his arrest. Now, new video footage of the incident has surfaced online, providing an alternate perspective on what exactly happened that day.
In the clip, a lime green McLaren, Mercedes-Benz Maybach and another Mercedes pull into the Bay Harbor Island condominium parking lot that’s located across the street from the Bay Harbor Islands Police Station and Town Hall. Pooh, who WSVN 7 News Miami reports was driving the McLaren, and the other drivers get out of their vehicles and begin to talk.
Suddenly, the man in the white t-shirt pulls out a pistol while another man in a black hoodie whips out a longer gun. Gunfire ensues and everyone starts running. Two people were shot during the melee and treated at Aventura Hospital for their injuries.
Police soon issued a warrant for Pooh’s arrest and he turned himself in to Bay Harbor Islands authorities on October 13, 2020. He was hit with several charges, including armed robbery, aggravated assault and theft. WSVN 7 News reporter Sheldon Fox claimed things went south after a failed drug and sneaker deal.
“Lontrell Williams, a.k.a., Pooh Shiesty, 20, is charged in connection with a double shooting last Friday in @BayHarborIsland,” he tweeted at the time. “@BHIPolice said the recording artist was part of a ‘drug and expensive sneaker deal gone wrong’ and left the scene in a rented green McLaren. @wsvn #7News.”
The 1017 Records artist was granted $30,000 bond and released from Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in West Miami-Dade a day after his arrest. According to New York City-based lawyer Mo Gangat, who frequently covers high profile rap cases, the Brooklyn native hired attorney Bradford Cohen. Cohen, of course, is currently representing Kodak Black and has previously represented YNW Melly.
In the wake of Pooh’s arrest, he received support from 1017 Records boss Gucci Mane, Lil Baby, Foogiano and more.
