Rapper Benzino announced that he planned to surrender to police on Monday (May 23) after he was named a fugitive following a warrant issued for his arrest.
According to VIBE, Benzino allegedly damaged Aletha Heart’s boyfriend’s vehicle during a verbal confrontation back in July 2020. Heart is the mother of Benzino’s child.
The rapper also shared that he was scheduled for a verbal court appearance via Zoom but unfortunately had to miss after testing positive for the coronavirus, that is when a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Speaking with AllHipHop, Benzino gave a bit more detail about the incident and what led up to it.
“I was kind of arguing with the guy she was with at the time,” he explained. “Long story short, the case was like two years ago and somebody put that old video up and it got me kind of arguing with him.”
