Blueface found himself standing before the judge on Wednesday November 16, as he was arraigned and had bail set for an alleged attempted murder.

 

The American rapper had bail set at $50,000 which the judge expects Blueface to clear with no issue. He also handed down a series of bail conditions that Blueface will have to follow or otherwise be subjected to police custody again. 

 

The artist, whose real name is Johnathan Porter, was booked into the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas, according to a statement from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

 

The 25-year-old was arrested on “warrants for attempted murder with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm at/into an occupied structure” related to a shooting on October 8, police said in the statement.

 

A video of Blueface leaving Euphoric Gentlemen’s Club in Las Vegas before shots rang off made its rounds online. 

 

The alleged victim says he recognized Blueface in the venue and had spoken “with him earlier in the night.” He claimed to have made a joke about the rapper before shots were fired. Court documents describing the incident revealed details of the fateful night.

 

“Words were exchanged and a black male adult in dark clothing aggressively approaches [the victim’s] truck reaching towards his waistband area. Documents also claim that Blueface “brandishes a handgun and discharges what appears to be two rounds at the vehicle.”
