The world of rap is violence filled and it has been proven time and time again. Recently, another budding rapper had his superstar dreams derailed after a run-in with the law. Rapper Big Bhris has got into some serious trouble after a violent shooting in Atlanta.
According to 11Alive, authorities claimed Big Bhris, real name Christopher Eppinger is a “member of the Young Slime Life gang” and when police officers moved in to arrest him, things turned sour. According to reports, the rapper had an outstanding robbery warrant and during the attempted arrest by police officers, Christopher allegedly shot an Atlanta officer six times.
It’s understood that four of those bullets bullets reportedly hit officer David Rodgers in the shoulder, while the others were in his knee and the side of his head. The rapper is facing some serious charges against him related related to gang activity and attempted murder.
As of now, it’s still unclear if other charges connected to the injury of a police officer will be added in the future. Christopher has been denied bond after a judge stated that he believed the rapper was a flight risk.
According to APD, Young Slim Life generally is known for “ruthless pedestrian and home invasion style robberies” as well as “drive-by shootings resulting in death and serious injury.” Members are also “known to sell and possess illegal narcotics ranging from marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy and liquid promethazine/codeine cough syrup.”
