R&B singer Sisqó was arrested early Saturday morning along with his girlfriend after allegedly firing shots at a car parked outside a neighbor’s house.
Police detained the renowned thong connoisseur and Dru Hill member, whose real name is Mark Andrews, at his home in the Baltimore suburb of Randallstown and charged him with five criminal acts, including first-degree assault, resisting arrest and reckless endangerment. His girlfriend, Tera Thomas, was also arrested and charged with second-degree assault and resisting arrest.
According to the police report, Sisqó’s neighbor’s brother called in a complaint around 3:30 a.m., saying he was waiting in his car for family members to come out when he heard a gunshot. The man told police that after his wife and a friend rushed into the car, he drove off as Sisqó fired more shots at his fleeing vehicle. Police believe three shots were fired.
After arriving at the singer’s house to question him, police said they found empty shell casings from a .9 mm pistol. Sisqó allowed officers into his house and denied firing any shots. He said he owned such a gun but that he carried it for protection because he had been receiving death threats. Officers said they found the gun and a magazine clip on his kitchen counter and it appeared to have been recently fired.
Sisqó and Thomas then resisted arrest, cursing at the officers and repeating claims that they had been receiving death threats. Both were taken to Baltimore County jail and booked. Sisqó was released Sunday after posting bail of $175,000. No court date has been set.
