Pooh Shiesty has been behind bars since July as a result of gun charges in two separate incidents. The first dates back to October 2020: an alleged armed robbery in Bay Harbor Islands, Florida in which Shiesty shot someone during an exchange for sneakers and marijuana. He initially pleaded not guilty to the charges, but in October, he filed to change it to a plea deal. The second incident dates back to May of this year, when he was accused of shooting a security guard in the leg at Miami’s King Of Diamonds strip club.
The rapper was denied bail in both cases, and with the May 2021 case still pending, it’s unlikely that Shiesty will be released anytime soon. Despite this, he remains confident that things will change, as per a new post he shared on his Instagram page.
