Regular readers will have clocked our coverage of rapper Finese2Thymes (a.k.a., Ricky L. Hampton). Mr. Hampton was arrested today after fleeing the scene of the Power Ultra Lounge in Little Rock, Arkansas when gunfire broke out, injuring 28 people. Of course, Mr. Hampton and his cohort ditched all their weapons as they fled, stayed away from public places and maintained a low-profile. Oh wait . . .
Authorities determined – thanks to social media (above) – that the rapper was going to be in Birmingham Saturday, with the arrest executed by the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force, ATF and FBI.
A search of Hampton’s silver Mercedes yielded two handguns and an AK-47, which the ATF took possession of.
That’s from Rolling Stone, whose prepositional sentence ending is something up with which we should not put.
And get this: The New York Times reported that Mr. Hampton was the subject of not one but two outstanding warrants before he performed at the Power Ultra Lounge.
Whatever else you can (and will) say about Mr. Hampton, his rep is assured.
