Following their Anger Management 3 performance on Monday night at New York’s Madison Square Garden, which ended with Young Buck’s parting shot “F— the police!,” Buck, Lloyd Banks and their entourage had a run-in with the men in blue that resulted in 13 arrests.
According to a spokesperson for the NYPD, Buck, 24, and Banks, 23 (real names David Brown and Christopher Lloyd, respectively), were traveling in a van with 11 other men when their vehicle was pulled over at 41st Street and Eighth Avenue in Manhattan for allegedly running a red light. Upon inspection, two guns were found.
Police said they recovered a .357 handgun from Steven Roker, a member of the entourage, and he was charged with criminal possession of a weapon. They also alleged there was a loaded .40 caliber gun on the floor of the van and everyone in the vehicle was charged with criminal possession of a weapon for that firearm. Another passenger, Darryl Lighty, was charged with obstructing governmental administration, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
On Tuesday afternoon (August 9) a spokesperson for the Manhattan district attorney’s office said it was quite possible that Banks and Buck would miss Tuesday night’s Anger Management show at the Garden, but both appeared as scheduled. Early on, Buck remarked “I’m back,” and later, during the song “Playboy,” Banks told the crowd, “I just spent the night in jail. Y’all better put your hands up!” At the end of the night, Buck said, “Ain’t a mutha——’ thing changed. It’s still f— the police! And I ain’t going to jail, either.”
According to authorities, Ronald Knight, 20; Eugene Cedric, 26; Dante Reed, 27; Clinton Skinner, 41; Terry Biles, 35; Paul McFarlane, 29; Terrence LaJuan, 29; Curtis Williams, 29; and Paris Fowler, 22, were also arrested Monday night.
Representatives for the G-Unit had no comment.
