Rapper Pooh Shiesty faces life in prison for allegedly shooting man in bum

Rapper Pooh Shiesty faces life in prison for allegedly shooting a man in the buttocks during a Florida robbery.

Back in Blood rapper, Pooh Shiesty has joined the plethora of other stars who have found themselves in trouble after their less-than-legal antics have been pieced together from content posted to their own social media accounts.

Rolling Stone reports that Shiesty, real name Lontrell Williams, is facing life in prison for allegedly shooting a man in the buttocks during an armed robbery in Florida.

The encounter is alleged to have occurred at Bay Harbor Island, Florida. Williams, and two others – Bobby Brown and Jayden Darosa –  apparently arranged to buy some marijuana and “high-end athletic sneakers” from two men at the Landon Hotel.

Sheisty, Brown, and Darosa allegedly shot the two men, one in the hip and one in the buttocks, according to a criminal complaint by Miami-Date Detective Elio Garcia, who is part of the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force.

Apparently, when Williams fled the scene, a Louis Vuitton bag stuffed with $40,912 fell out of the driver’s seat of the rented, lime green car. Investigators say the serial numbers on one of the recovered bills matched a $100 bill flashed on Williams’ Instagram account days before the robbery.

Williams also allegedly flaunted “several long rifles” in the Instagram posts, matching the description of the Draco subcompact machine gun allegedly used in the Florida incident.

Williams was previously arrested on June 8 on an aggravated battery charge. He was accused of pulling a semi-automatic pistol from his waistband before waving it around the King of Diamonds Club in Miami last May. Allegedly a shot was fired, hitting a security guard in the ankle.

A trial for a four-count federal indictment is scheduled to begin on October 25.

I guess it’s a bit of a Pooh-ey situation.
