Gunplay, who reported to a Miami jail for charges of armed robbery with a firearm and aggravated assault, was given a $150,000 bond and house arrest today. Gunplay’s attorney Michael Grieco released an e-mail statement to NBC Miami shortly after the news that confirms the MMG rapper would be returning to the limelight soon.
"The state did not prove that Mr. Morales was a flight risk or a threat to the community," he said. "He should be home with his family shortly. This is first step in clearing his name so he can continue his emerging music career.”
Gunplay—real name Richard Morales—had a warrant issued for his arrest. The 33-year-old rapper was with Randy Jones, who robbed a man at a Miami tax business on April 13. Video footage surfaced of Gunplay pulling a gun on his former accountant.
According to the warrant, Gunplay stole a gold chain and a cell phone from Turron Woodside who was working at the Tax Place. He struck the man several times in the head before threatening him with a handgun. Then, him and Jones fled the scene and drove off in black Chevy suburban.
According to police, Gunplay returned to Woodside's place of work, only this time pointing a gun as he was standing outside of the business yelling at him. The warrant continued to say the victim ran inside, while Gunplay fled the scene again.
