Bobby Shmurda is seeking payback from the NYPD as it has been reported that he plans to sue them for false arrest.
Shmurda, whose real name is Ackquille Pollard and is known for his sone “Shmoney Dance”, is fighting weapon charges and drugs since December 2014 which he claims stemmed from an illegal house investigation.
He maintains that police entered and searched his friend’s Brooklyn house while Shmurda was there seeing.
“When one of the occupants opened the door a slight touch to see who was there, Officer Douglas Corso and other police officers kicked in the door and entered the residence without a search warrant,” records stated.
He also maintains that they tried to pin a gun and drug paraphernalia found at the house on him even though he denies knowing who the owner of the stuff is. Authorities on the other hand said they entered the house catching Bobby trying to conceal a gun in a couch.
Pollard’s attorney is a civil rights attorney who is married to Civilian Complaint Review Board executive director Mina Malik, Derek Sells. A civilian complaint wasn’t filed with the CCRB about an illegal investigation, Sells said.
The firearm charge in Brooklyn was dismissed, but Pollard is currently facing weapons possession charges in separate cases in the Bronx and Manhattan. He’s free on $2 million bail.
Corso, the only named policeman in the suit, was a defendant in five other national civil rights suits going back to 2011.
Confessing in the lawsuit that he now suffers from mental anguish” and permanent “nervous shock, Pollard accuses officers of also teasing him by “chanting the lyrics to his chart-topping tunes.”
The Daily News also reported Shmurda is apparently out on $2 million bond and the case has been thrown out. The rapper is expected in court May 11th.
