Drake, Police Questioning: Rapper Refuses to Turn Himself in Following Brawl With Chris Brown
As police in New York City try to make sense of the brawl that took place last Thursday (June 14) at New York City’s W.i.P. nightclub, Drake is refusing to turn himself in and answer questions, the New York Post reports. The Canadian MC and his posse allegedly came to blows with Chris Brown and his entourage, and while cops want to chat with everyone involved, Drizzy maintains the melee wasn’t his fault.
“Why would he turn himself in when he did not commit any wrong-doing?” said Drake’s rep, Kelly Bush, in an email to the newspaper.
Some witnesses claim to have seen Drake throw a bottle during the dust-up, and if that’s true, he could be charged with rioting, according to the Post. The 25-year-old rhymer might also answer to reckless endangerment.
“The detectives are looking at it and investigating it, and if an arrest is appropriate, an arrest is going to be made,” New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told the newspaper. “When detectives got there, no one was there. Eight people were injured. The place was in disarray. They’re gathering information.”
