Fabolous Free Of Gun Charge

Posted By on June 15, 2007

Gun charges that put Fabolous in jail overnight last year were dismissed by a Manhattan judge today (June 14).

According to the Associated Press, a prosecutor revealed that authorities were unable to prove that Fabolous or his associates were the owners of any firearms.

"He's more relieved than happy," said Alberto Ebanks, Fab's lawyer. "He should never have been here in the first place."

Fabolous (born John Jackson) and three of his friends were charged with illegal gun possession when police found two handguns in a vehicle carrying the rapper to hospital after he was shot outside Justin's Restaurant.

It was alleged that former Boston Celtics guard Sebastian Telfair was connected to Fabolous' shooting. Investigators claimed that someone affiliated with Fabolous stole Telfair's $50,000 chain outside the restaurant and the hoop-star's crew responded by shooting the rapper when he left the eatery.

Telfair would deny having anything to do with Fabolous shooting. Fab would also refute claims of his crew robbing Telfair and would hire private investigators to obtain more details surrounding his shooting and Telfair's burglary.
