Foogiano Gets 5 Years In Prison

Foogiano has been sent to jail after illegally removing his government-issued ankle monitor and left it on the side of the road last December. According to a report from the Athens Banner-Herald on Tuesday (May 4), a judge in Georgia’s Greene County Superior Court sentenced Foogiano to five years in prison after he pleaded guilty on Monday (May 3) for removing the device.

Supporters of Foogiano and his recent charges/arrest

Music executive and Authentic Empire founder, Boomman tweeted about the arrest of Foogiano on May 3.

He wrote, “Green County Just Gave @FoogianoDaMayor 5 years for cutting an ankle monitor for a gun charge that wasn’t his and was claimed by some one else this is beyond crazy 😥 we have to do something about this!”

Foogiano also posted about his sentencing through Instagram, sharing a post with a black-and-yellow “Free Foo” sign and the caption read, “All my friends, family, and supporters make this your profile pic ‘while I’m gone.'”

On May 3rd, Meek Mill also joined the “Free Foo” movement, writing, “Free Foogiano ….. don’t try to kill that man whole career about tryna protect his self years ago!”

Arrests/Charges

After Foogiano “melted the device“, according to the Courier-Journal back in March, his location was unknown for about three months until he was arrested by a U.S. Marshal’s Office task force in Memphis on March 11. Foogiano was presumably in the city visiting memorial services for the brother of Pooh Shiesty, who is also signed to Gucci Mane’s 1017 Records.

When he was arrested, Foogiano was hit with a fugitive of justice without a warrant charge. He was required to wear an ankle monitor and was expected to stay in his home state of Georgia after being taken into custody for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in Barrow County, Ga. on Dec. 6, 2020.

The arrest derives from a Barrow County sheriff’s deputy pulling over Foogiano’s vehicle for a faulty brake light and overly dark-tinted windows. Although the rapper wasn’t driving a vehicle, when questioned about the firearm that was recovered from the car, Foogiano reportedly told the officer “he is a famous rapper and must have a gun because rappers get shot.” He was already on probation for a burglary conviction, so this offense was a violation of his probation.

It was also reported that the officers smelled marijuana when examining the vehicle and found a large amount of money. Three other individuals were also in the car, including the driver who had a gun but was licensed to carry it. All three people were let go. Foogiano was then later released from jail a week after appearing in Greene County Superior Court and paying a $50,000 cash bond.
