ASAP Bari has been hit with seven criminal counts in his drug case stemming from his November 2018 arrest, according to TMZ. They include two felony charges of "possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver weed" and "criminal conspiracy to commit to possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver." The other five are misdemeanors that include possession of drug paraphernalia.
Bari was arrested in Palmer Township, Pennsylvania the week following Thanksgiving when cops say they caught the Mercedes he was riding in going the wrong way. There was allegedly strong smell of weed was emanating from the vehicle, and a search allegedly turned up two dozen circular tins of marijuana. Bari was strip-searched when he arrived at the police station he was strip-searched, which resulted in three more tins of marijuana being found in his underwear.
The VLONE co-founder also pleaded guilty to a sexual assault charge in London. This stemmed from 2017 footage that showed Bari pulling bed covers off a naked woman before slapping her buttocks. He was also seen telling that woman to give him oral sex.
She had reportedly decided to pursue legal action after her mother told her the footage was on the internet. Bari's reps contended that the video was out of context, and he sued her for defamation and civil extortion. Ultimately, he was able to avoid jail time by paying a fine of £4,000 (about $5,034) in addition to a payment of £2,500 (roughly $3,145) to the victim.
