Maybach Music Group's Gunplay is reportedly a free man after turning himself into local authorities a few weeks ago on robbery charges.
According to reports, Gunplay received a $150,000 bond and must now remain on house arrest.
Rapper Gunplay was given a $150,000 bond and house arrest on Monday in connection to the robbery of man at Miami tax business, his attorney said. "The state did not prove that Mr. Morales was a flight risk or a threat to the community," said his attorney Michael Grieco in an email statement. "He should be home with his family shortly. This is first step in clearing his name so he can continue his emerging music career." (NBC Miami)

It was a somber day on Thursday when Maybach Music Group rapper Gunplay turned himself in to the Miami-Dade Police Department on a May warrant stemming from a robbery. While the Carol City Cartel rapper didn't say much, in an exclusive video that MTV News has obtained of Gunplay turning himself in, the emotions are written all over his face. Gun, dressed in a white dress shirt and black dress pants, with a red and green Gucci belt, exits a white SUV with his lawyer and a few loved ones on his way toward a Miami police precinct. The Miami-Dade Police Department confirmed to MTV News that on Thursday, the Rick Ross protégé turned himself in and now faces armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault charges and is currently being held with no bond. The incident most likely happened in May, when the warrant was originally issued for Gunplay's arrest, but it is unclear at the time. (MTV)
Reports his incarceration flooded the Internet a few weeks ago.
Rick Ross protégé Gunplay turned himself in to a Miami jail moments ago after a warrant was issued for his arrest, stemming from an armed robbery -- Gunplay's attorney tells TMZ. The warrant was issued in May, listing "robbery" as the offense. No other details about the alleged offense are listed. Gunplay's attorney Mike Grieco tells us, "Gunplay voluntarily surrendered today without incident. There's been an open arrest warrant for armed robbery with a firearm." A rep for Gunplay tells TMZ, the rapper was advised to turn himself in by his attorney following the highly-publicized brawl, which likely drew police attention to the active warrant. (TMZ)
