When Terius Gray (AKA Juvenile) was arrested on Miami Beach outside LIV at 4 a.m. today, he might have said, "Ha? I'm just Being Myself, wearing these Solja Rags in this 400 Degreez heat, following The G-Code and speaking my Project English 'cause I'm Juve the Great if you need a Reality Check. I ain't fight, I'm just Cocky & Confident."
After all, his last arrest in Dade County took place over ten years ago for an alleged incident involving a Moët bottle cracking a dude's head at the Miami Improv comedy club in Coconut Grove.
In honor of his short trip to gladiator school (he's been out since 8 a.m.), here is Crossfade's extremely detailed breakdown of what the cops say happened.
According to the arrest report provided by Officer Ross of the Miami Beach Police Department, "approximately 100 [people]" were gathered on the valet ramp at the front of the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel with some of them yelling screaming and pushing each other.
Police told everyone to leave, and Juvenile was walking to his car when he was "involved in a fight" that security personnel had to break up. The NOLA rapper was arrested and taken to the Miami Beach Police Department and then transported to Dade County Jail.
Oddly enough, the copy of the arrest report against Terius Gray/Juvenile provided by the MBPD is unsigned. The signature indicates the arresting officer pledges that all of his or her statements are true and correct.
The Miami Beach public information officer we reached for comment said, "Sometimes we send out unfinished reports. Are you asking me if it's valid? The answer is yes."
The report confirms that (1) the arrest took place at approximately 4 a.m. today; (2) Juvenile has gold teeth; (3) no weapons were seized; (4) he was not drunk or on drugs; (5) he lives in Slidell, Louisiana; (6) he has a tattoo with the initials of a boy on his left arm; (7) he's a self-employed U.S. citizen; (8) he is alleged to have committed a misdemeanor; and (9) there was no gang activity or fraud involved.
Also, Juvenile is 37 years old and his date of birth is March 26, 1975. He's a black male of African ethnicity who stands 5'10" and weighs 165 pounds. He has short black hair, brown eyes, and wasn't wearing glasses.
We here at Crossfade blacked out his phone number. Also, Officer Ross spelled Terius wrong.
