It’s been a struggle week for Nashville rapper Starlito. Just a few days after getting into an altercation with fellow Nashvillian, Young Buck, East Nashville News is reporting that an arrest warrant has been issued for the “Leash On Life” rapper for allegedly shooting a man at a Batter’d & Fried restaurant.
According to News Channel 5 the altercation happened on Tuesday evening (Aug. 2) when the victim, James Fletcher, 36, entered the restaurant with a few friends. Witnesses say upon entering Fletcher instantly punched one of Starlito’s friends which resulted in a fight before the rapper allegedly fired off a weapon.
Fletcher was hit in the leg.
As soon as shots were fired employees and customers took to the bathroom for protection.
Restaurant workers said Starlito and his friends fled the scene in a BMW Crossover.
Fletcher was taken to Vanderbilt University Hospital and is expected to be okay. He is currently refusing to cooperate with authorities on the matter. But they may not need much help.
At the time of the shooting, Starlito was out on bail for harassment charges due to threatening text messages and photos he sent to someone. One of said photos was of Starlito standing next to the complainant’s car with a gun. Talk about handing over evidence.
As of right now police have yet to find Starlito who is scheduled to appear in court on August 16. Good luck with that.
