Waka Flocka Flame will have to pay a North Carolina man over $500,000 in damages following his injury in a parking lot shootout last year, a jury has ruled. Flocka's security guards shot the man, aspiring rapper Antonio Stukes, after he approached Waka outside of a Car Stereo Warehouse in an attempt to hand him his demo CD. Waka's attorneys had argued that Stukes approached the rapper in a threatening manner.
Stukes suffered a bullet wound to the shoulder as a result of the incident. Flocka, who was in town for a show at Bojangles Coliseum, has been ordered to pay him $501,000 in compensatory and punitive damages via his management company, Mizay Entertainment, WCNC reports.
"The jury came down in our favor and really hit them hard," Stukes' attorney Adam Seifer said. "The facts that were in the evidence showed they essentially shot at my client without provocation."
