Obie Trice was arrested and charged earlier this week for allegedly using a phone to threaten or harass someone.
According to a Detroit News report, published on Friday (June 17), Obie Trice was arrested Thursday (June 16) and booked at the Oakland County Jail in Michigan on a charge of using a telephone to harass or threaten someone.
According to an inmate document obtained by XXL, the former Shady Records artist was booked just before 5 p.m. on Thursday and held on a $10,000 bond. On the following day, Trice was arraigned in 48th District Court in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and released at 1:37 p.m., central time. The Detroit News reports that the alleged crime is punishable by six months in jail, a $1,000 fine or both.
XXL has reached out to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department and West Bloomfield Police Department for comment.
This is not Obie Trice’s first run-in with the law. Back in July of 2020, the now 44-year-old rapper spent 90 days in jail for shooting a man in the groin during an argument in December of 2019.
According to authorities, Trice shot the son of his then 40-year-old girlfriend, who was living with him at the time. Police were called to Trice’s residence after neighbors heard someone screaming in the home. When police arrived, Trice’s girlfriend informed authorities that they got into a heated argument and her son got in the middle of it, and apparent a gun accidentally discharged, hitting the then 18-year-old male in his groin. The woman’s son did survive his injuries.
Since then, Obie Trice has stayed relativity out of trouble until now.
