This week, Shmurda’s lawyer Howard Greenberg revealed his Brooklyn gun charge would vanish into thin air soon.
“Brooklyn D.A. office announced that the gun case in Brooklyn will be dismissed in about two weeks,” Greenberg confirmed. That Brooklyn case, according to court papers, alleged that Bobby fired a gun toward a crowd of people outside a barber shop. There was also another incident in which he was charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon and Criminally Using Drug Paraphernalia after police seized two loaded firearms and narcotics paraphernalia inside a Brooklyn residence.” (Revolt TV)
Greenberg also dismissed rumors about Bobby getting into a recent jail altercation.
“Bullsh*t,” Greenberg told REVOLT about the circulating rumor. “Saw him yesterday (January 20) in court. He looked fantastic.” (Revolt TV)
Despite buzz of Epic Records posting $2 million bail for Shmurda, Greenberg recently said his client had remained jailed during the Christmas holiday.
“There is no news. We’re just trying to put something else together now,” Greenberg said about Epic possibly posting the $2 million bail. “My guy’s rich, he’s busy. He’s always on tour. He’s supposedly leader of this crew, but he’s not charged with any violence. Use your head, it doesn’t make any sense. I’m not going to let them crucify Bobby Shmurd.” (The FADER)
