Wait, There’s More: A few days ago, details surfaced on Pop’s New York arrest on a felony charge.
In court documents obtained by Complex, Pop Smoke is listed as being charged with Interstate Transportation of Stolen Motor Vehicle. He’s alleged to have “knowingly and intentionally” transported the vehicle “on or about and between” Nov. 5 and Dec. 3 of last year. A separate report from TMZ cites law enforcement sources as claiming that Pop Smoke first met the car’s owner at a recording studio in Los Angeles, at which point a “verbal agreement” regarding use of the car in a video was established. The car was allegedly agreed to be returned the following day, though the report states that didn’t happen, at which point the car was called in as stolen. (Complex)
