B.G. Pleads Not Guilty to Gun Charge
New Orleans rapper B.G. entered a not guilty plea to a felony gun possession charge in Orleans Parish Criminal District Court on Thursday (Feb. 11). The charge stems from the NOLA native's arrest last November after authorities found three firearms in his vehicle, a loaded magazine and two extended clips. Two of the weapons were also reportedly stolen.
Following his arrest, B.G., born Christopher Dorsey, declared his innocence and theorized that he received a bad rap based on his reputation. "The bond, [the court] wanted to set it at a 100,000 because of my record," he said in an interview. "As of right now ... I don't know how the guns got in the vehicle. For all I know the police coulda' put 'em in the vehicle. But when I got in the vehicle, the guns wasn't in there." Two of his associates, who were also in the car, were picked up on illegal gun possession charges as well.
This isn't the first time B.G. has gotten himself into legal trouble. Last year he was arrested a total of four times. In a separate incident, the 29-year-old was sentenced to two years' probation for driving while intoxicated, he was also ordered to submit to drug testing -- which he failed. As a result the former Hot Boys group member was ordered to pay $350 to Jefferson Parish.
His eleventh album, 'Two Hood 2 Be Hollywood,' dropped last December.
