On Saturday, May 30, French Montana, Ja Rule, Busta Rhymes and an additional 100-plus people headed to Brooklyn to shoot a tribute music video for the late Coke Boys rapper, Chinx.
The music video shoot took a wrong turn when police were notified of possible illegal activities going on. At about 6:15 p.m. undercover police officers made their way to the video shoot located behind a Fulton St. Bravo Supermarket. They quickly discovered the illegal weapons and drugs that had been reported. Several firearms and drugs-including weed, coke and molly-were found and confiscated at the scene.
A total of 5 arrests- three men and two women- were made that evening. Those arrested include 32-year-old Ronald James and his 27-year-old girlfriend who were seen passing around a Derringer pistol, Edward Elkins who had a semi-automatic pistol poorly hidden in a shopping bag between his feet, and 30-year-old Wendy Miranda when a .32-caliber was discovered near her.
Ironically, cops also arrested Frank Bartlett, 35, who was serving as the security guard for the music video shoot. Bartlett was arrested for having a defaced firearm in his waistband.
Juelz Santana, Noreaga, and NBA star Lance Stephenson were also spotted among the crowd on Saturday evening.
