Shy Glizzy Detained By Police At Gunpoint After Allegedly Pulling Gun On GF: Video

It's been relatively quiet on Shy Glizzy's front since the arrival of his Flowers album earlier this year. That saw the lyricist enjoying a moment in the spotlight in February. Fans were appreciative of both his various solo efforts on the tracklist, as well as collaborations with names like Chris Brown and NBA YoungBoy. Today (May 15), unfortunately, his name is connected with far less flattering headlines. Among them are allegations of pulling a gun on his girlfriend during an argument and threatening to harm her.

According to TMZ, Glizzy was arrested this past Saturday following a verbal altercation with the woman. Their situation is said to be on-again-off-again in nature but apparently reached a new low when he brought a firearm into their latest feud. The incident took place on a public street around 9 AM, and afterward, the 30-year-old "took off." Sources have told the outlet that the West Hollywood Sheriff's Deputies became involved when a criminal report was filed. Glizzy was tracked down around 6 PM, and promptly arrested alongside his manager.

Glizzy and His Manager Swarmed by Police in Sherman Oaks

A video of the Washington, D.C. native's detainment has been circulating online, showing a group of officers surrounding Glizzy and his manager at gunpoint while yelling out orders at them. Authorities didn't find a gun on the accused, and he denied having threatened the girlfriend, who's allegedly only been in his life for four months now. Regardless, Shy was booked on a felony charge of making criminal threats.

After approximately four hours behind bars, the "White Girl" rapper was freed on a $50,000 bond. At this time, the WeHo Sheriff's office continues to investigate. TMZ reached out to the embattled artist and his team for further clarification on the situation but didn't hear back in time for publication. Are you surprised by the news of Shy Glizzy's detainment?
