StaySolidRocky has reportedly been arrested for allegedly shooting a gun inside a funeral service at a Virginia church last month.

According to CBS 46 News, the Richmond, Virgina native (real name Darak Figueroa) was picked up in Atlanta by the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force on Thursday (September 8).

The arrest came as the result of a warrant being issued for StaySolidRocky after allegedly shooting a gun off inside the New Life Outreach Church in Chesterfield, Virginia, on August 27 at the end of a funeral service.

The “Party Girl” rapper is said to have been charged with shooting in an unoccupied building and reckless handling of a firearm.

After fleeing to Georgia to evade capture, he was later found by police driving a pink and black Maserati Levante. It’s reported he had a gun on him during his arrest.

The Fugitive Task Force apprehended StaySolidRocky after receiving assistance from the Georgia State Patrol and Atlanta Police Department.

StaySolidRocky released his debut EP Fallin in June 2020 via Columbia Records. The San Antonio-born rapper rose to prominence thanks to the project’s hit single “Party Girl,” which peaked at No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100.

His most recent release is Why So Larceny?, which he released independently in August. The seven-track project features the singles “Sloppy Joe” and “Cool Off.”
