Sheck Wes Confirms He Was Released and Is Not Locked Up After Being Arrested For Gun and Drugs Charges in Harlem; Faces Two Felonies But Got Misdemeanor Marijuana Charge Dropped

Yesterday, Sheck Wes was arrested along with three friends for carrying a gun along with marijuana in his 2019 Lamborghini SUV in Harlem. All are facing two felonies which are criminal possession of a loaded firearm and criminal possession of a weapon. The gun found was a loaded 9mm Smith & Wesson pistol.

Sheck’s attorney has since told TMZ that “This morning, Judge Moyne, in the Manhattan Criminal Court released Sheck Wes on his own recognizance, with no bail. His case was adjourned to August. During that period, we will conduct our own investigation into the charges.”

Wes didn’t end up getting charged for the marijuana but was also cited for not having a driver’s license. The NY native also took to Twitter today to deny being locked up as he said “The Scouts is not locked up wtf.” Wes included a photo of himself in NY while wearing a face mask. Wes is known most notably for his 2018 breakout hit single, “Mo Bamba.”
