Rapper Dirty Tay, who is signed to Lil Baby’s 4PF record label, was reportedly arrested last week for the alleged shooting of a 3-year-old and his father.
Per a news report from Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the 24-year-old rapper was arrested during a traffic stop on Friday, August 19. Dirty Tay, real name Kentavious Wright, was booked into the Fulton County Jail because authorities believe he was behind a shooting earlier in the month that left a 3-year-old injured. The child was shot in the head, but he has since had the bullet removed and is reportedly considered to be in a stable condition.
Dirty Tay was arrested on counts including criminal attempt to commit murder, aggravated assault, first-degree cruelty to children, and three counts of committing offenses included in Georgia’s Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act with intent to gain membership or increase his status in a criminal organization. During the traffic stop, officers took him and his unidentified girlfriend into custody. A search of the woman led to the discovery of a weapon that is believed to belong to the rapper.
The shooting went down on Aug. 3 after the father and his son left Off The Hook barbershop according to the police. The father got into his car with his son, when he noticed a Kia pull up alongside them. A person traveling in the vehicle from the passenger side opened fire from the window. The father said five shots were fired, and police have since recovered three 9mm shell casings from the scene. The boy was taken to the hospital for his injuries.
In a post shared on his Instagram Stories, Dirty Tay denied any involvement with the shooting. “I’m innocent the news is not always right don’t bash me because of allegations,” he wrote.
