Drakeo launched an Instagram Live session that revealed he’d been pulled over by the cops. He said he was sitting in the backseat of an Uber when officers revealed that he and the driver had been pulled over for tinted windows. Seeing that the vehicle presumably belongs to the Uber driver and not Drakeo, it’s expected that cops would have spoken to the operator of the vehicle and not Drakeo. However, Drakeo said he was asked to step out of the car, and following a back and forth with the officers, he was placed under arrest for unknown reasons. It’s also unknown if the Uber driver was placed under arrest as well.
Drakeo’s release was a drawn-out process that began when he was acquitted of the murder and attempted murder charges in July 2019. Shortly after, a district attorney chose to refile for charges of criminal gang conspiracy and shooting from a motor vehicle. Drakeo spent another year in jail before the DA’s office offered him a plea deal which led to his freedom.
