6ix9ine is no stranger to controversy and that goes for his security as well. Five members of the rappers’ security team have been accused of going on a car chase and stealing a cell phone while impersonating police.
The Daily Beast reports that five members of 69’s security team are facing serious charges. They apparently went through a wild chase and tracked down a man in Harlem where they confronted him after this man allegedly captured footage of the rapper.
These five unnamed security team members are being charged with robbery in the first and second degree, along with first-degree criminal impersonation. One of those security guards is a former NJPD officer on top of it all.
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. said that 6ix9ine’s security chased down this man in their SUVs with flashing lights and sirens on, similar to a police car. It is alleged that the man being pursued was with his girlfriend when he tried to record footage of Tekashi 69, but then security yelled at him and chased him down before he drove away
“A celebrity entourage is not a police department, and Manhattan is not the Wild West,” Vance wrote about the situation. “As alleged, these highly-compensated vigilantes caravanned through the streets of Harlem with sirens flashing in order to track a man down and steal and break his phone… False reports—especially about firearms—can carry devastating consequences and fortunately, no one was injured or killed in the actual police response.”
We will continue to keep a close eye on this situation here at Thirsty. Hopefully, 6ix9ine’s security will settle things down from this point on. It is unclear exactly what 69 was doing that they didn’t want recorded.
