Why was Blueface arrested?

Blueface just can’t seem to keep himself out of trouble. According to Fox5Vegas, Blueface was booked and charged on Wednesday, June 7, 2023, for robbery in Las Vegas, Nev.

The outlet initially reported that the rapper was held on a $20,000 bond in the Clark County Detention Center, and he was later released, per the Clark County Detention Center records.

In the meantime, Blueface has posted on social media and seems unfazed by the charges. On June 7, Blueface shared a video of himself walking to a car where his on-again off-again girlfriend and baby mama Jaidyn Alexis was in the driver seat.

“Ain’t no better feeling than walking out of the jail and seeing your b---h waiting right here for you,” the rapper said as he opened the car door. “How long have you been waiting right here?”

“Babe, I’ve been waiting for hours,” Jaidyn said. “I got a blunt and I got a bottle.”

The outlet shared that Blueface is scheduled to appear in front of the judge on Thursday, June 8.

At this time, the details surrounding Blueface’s robbery charge haven't been disclosed to the public.

In case you’ve been out of the loop, Blueface was arrested for attempted murder and discharging a gun at and/or into an occupied structure on Oct. 8, 2022, regarding a Las Vegas shooting on the 6300 block of Windy Road, per Fox5Vegas.

Sources told TMZ that the arrest was part of a sting operation. Six to eight cops were parked in unmarked vehicles and made the arrest outside of Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles.

At the time, TMZ confirmed that Blueface’s bail was set at $50,000.

Interestingly, the outlets shared that the robbery charge is a direct violation of the stipulations put in place after the shooting charges.

However, Blueface’s legal time is ready to get to work on both cases.

“We look forward to vigorously defending him in both cases,” lawyers Lisa Rasmussen and Kristina Wildeveld told TMZ.
