Joe Budden Finally Surrenders To NYPD

Posted By on August 28, 2014

Rapper Joe Budden has been a wanted man by the New York police department, but the Slaughterhouse member has reportedly turned himself in to the police on multiple charges.

According to reports, the rapper turned himself over to police on Wednesday (August 27).

“Budden turned himself in to NYPD’s 34th precinct … where he was charged with robbery and grand larceny — for allegedly taking his GF’s cell phone during a violent assault. While he was still in custody … Budden tweeted, “I’ll be out in time for the strip club later.” As we reported … sources say Budden became enraged when he saw pics of his girlfriend with other men. He allegedly dragged her out of a NYC restaurant … and drove her to his home in NJ where she told cops he beat the crap out of her.” (TMZ)

Earlier in the week Budden spoke in an interview and said he had been fully cooperating with the police.

“It’s been a frenzy,” Budden said in an interview. “I was surprised at all of it, to be honest. The media circus, the witch hunt, the man hunt. Well, you guys found me rather easily. [laughs] And I’m wearing pink. Who runs wearing pink? No, I’m not on the run. Those [tweets] were antagonizing a bit. That was me being my own worst enemy but again, there is no law against tweeting. No, no I do not [plan on sending more NYPD-related tweets]. I’m fully cooperative with everything happening in New Jersey. I’ve turned myself in, I’ve been released, my lawyer’s handling everything else. Whatever needs to be done to rectify the situation, I’m more than willing to comply.” (NBC New York)
