Bond In 20

In a dramatic turn of events on Dec. 10, Rich The Kid was entangled in a bomb threat incident at the SLS Hotel in South Beach during his stay for Art Basel

As law enforcement officials responded to the threat, they blocked off the area for investigation, leading to a confrontation with the rapper. Despite the ongoing security measures, the “New Freezer” rapper insisted on accessing his hotel room. 

Authorities, however, informed him that entry would only be permitted once the sweep was completed, cautioning him against further attempts. Undeterred, the rapper defiantly retorted, “I’ll bond out in 20 minutes,” and proceeded to trespass onto the property by jumping over a fence, resulting in his subsequent arrest.

Inside the hotel, Rich The Kid encountered a K-9 unit, and an officer ordered him to leave the premises. Despite the command, the rapper refused and lingered in the driveway. 

Consequently, he was taken into custody by the police. The artist was charged with resisting an officer without violence and trespassing, both misdemeanors. It remains unclear whether he has bonded out or is still held in custody.
