Hours, before the rapper was to turn himself in he, did an exclusive interview with WSB-TV and proclaimed his innocence.
“I have nothing to hide,” he said. “I have nothing to run from. We found out we had a warrant actually while on tour. Once I heard, I immediately came back.”
Court documents for Durk state the artist has been charged with criminal attempt to commit murder, aggravated assault, unlawful for person employed by/associated with criminal street gang to conduct/participate in criminal gang activity, possession of firearm during commission of a felony and possession of firearm by convicted felon.
The charges stem from a February 5 shooting at The Varsity restaurant in Atlanta where a 23-year-old man suffered multiple gunshot wounds.
Durk remains in custody at the Fulton County Jail after his bond has been reportedly denied.
