Hot Boys' Christopher "B.G." Dorsey has reportedly pleaded not guilty to a gun possession charge he received in Louisiana last November.
According to reports, the plea was made in court Thursday (February 11).
B.G., a prominent local hip-hop artist and longtime collaborator with superstar Lil Wayne, pleaded innocent to a gun charge Thursday in Orleans Parish Criminal District Court. Christopher Dorsey, 29, who raps under the moniker B.G. or Baby Gangsta, was arrested with two other men in November for allegedly possessing three weapons, along with loaded magazines and two extended clips, while driving in eastern New Orleans. Police said two of the three guns had been previously reported stolen. (NOLA News)
B.G. previously addressed the arrest and said he did not possess a firearm when busted last fall.
"The bond, [the court] wanted to set it at a 100,000 [dollars] because of my record," B.G. explained in an interview. "But the bond end up being like 50,000...[And] so I got my other little partna [Demounde] out of jail, and he gonna sign the affidavit saying that none of [us] had no knowledge that the guns was in the car so my man [Jerod's] parole officer can come sign him out..."As of right now...I don't know how the guns got in the vehicle. For all I know the police coulda put 'em in the vehicle. But when I got in the vehicle, the guns wasn't in there." (Hip Hop DX)
He was reportedly stopped during a routine traffic stop by police in early November.
Police arrested B.G. Tuesday night following a traffic stop in which officers recovered three guns, two of which were reported stolen, according to the New Orleans Police Department. Dorsey, 29, was booked with illegal carrying of weapons. He appeared in magistrate court Thursday morning, but the status of his incarceration, such as bond information, was not listed Thursday night in electronic court records maintained by the Criminal Sheriff's Office.
