An alleged arrest in the chain-snatching incident reportedly went down this past weekend.
After Slowbucks and his lawyer announced a civil investigation into the entrepreneur’s chain being stolen at Summer Jam at a press conference earlier this week, AllHipHop reports that a 50 Cent affiliate has been arrested for the crime. Mikey Fingers, who is apparently a known member of the rapper’s entourage, was named in a since-deleted Tweet by Mike Lighty according to AllHipHop. “#ShoutOut The coward @slowbucks For Snitching On the Homie Aka Tio #MikeyFingers !!!!!” he reportedly wrote.

Slowbucks issued a statement following a press conference he held last week.
“I ???? this #Snitching sh!t is getting outta hand… Da news #Conference y’all viewed was not about #PressingCharges or anything like that it was about #Brand #Management! Da brand consultant was explaining Da case 2 a panel of P.R. In an attempt 2 try 2 pull some bread out 4 Da”SlowBucks” Brand.. However, the media will always show y’all what they want you 2 ????.. We not entertaining NO #Police @ all!! This is the last time I’m speaking on it…!!! #FACTS & Still (Slowbucks’ Instagram)
SB’s attorney John P Bostany spoke on being hired and pursuing an investigation into the crime at the press conference.
“What happened on Sunday would have brought us back 20 years if we weren’t dealing with a warrior like Slowbucks. True warriors have the strength to react with honor. It’s easy and cheap to react with violence. Here Slowbucks walked a straight line, he had the courage and the strength to come here and remind everyone that no matter how rich or powerful some might become, how popular they may be, they still are not above the law.” (Slowbucks Press Conference)
