Blac Youngsta Arrested for Young Dolph Shooting

Nearly three months after Young Dolph’s bulletproof vehicle was shot up to 100 times, Blac Youngsta has turned himself in to Charlotte police in connection to the case.

Youngsta surrendered to law enforcement officials along with two other men — Fredrick Black and Antavius Gardner — after warrants were issued for their arrest, according to Charlotte’s WSOC-TV.

In February, Dolph’s heavily-armored ride was reportedly shot up with more than 100 rounds. The rapper wasn’t injured in the shooting, but bullets went into nearby houses and nearly missed children, according to the local news outlet.

Police issued the warrant for Blac’s arrest after they found a van that was involved in the shooting. Blac’s lawyer said that the rapper rented the van, but it was later stolen. Youngsta — whose real name is Sammie Benson — commented: “Obviously somebody’s ratting, somebody snitching.”

Benson, Black, and Gardner have reportedly been charged with six counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied property and felony conspiracy. They are expected to face a judge on Wednesday (May 17).

Dolph has been involved in beef with fellow Memphis artists Blac Youngsta and Yo Gotti for some time now. During a March interview with TMZ, shortly after the shooting, he insinuated that the problems involved “hatred” and “envy,” and spoke specifically about his feud with Youngsta, which has reportedly included another altercation.

“He don’t know me, I don’t know him. He never met me,” explained the Gelato rapper. “You ever heard of a publicity stunt? Come on, that’s see through, like a windshield. The whole situation’s see-through just like the windshield. You know who got a problem with Dolph over there…I could make somebody go to any neighborhood I want to, there’s some people you just don’t play with, there’s some people you just don’t try.”
