Ellison, who has plead not guilty to all the charges, got picked up Nov. 6 and he is still in custody in Manhattan.

During the alleged incident, 6ix9ine was removed from his SUV, pistol-whipped and taken to his Brooklyn home where he was forcibly liberated of $750K in jewelry and over $15K in cash.
