One of the officers who arrested Bobby Shmurda on a gun possession charge, months before he was detained indefinitely for murder conspiracy, took the stand during a pre-trial hearing on Tuesday [July 19], and gave testimony on what he alleges to have been the rapper born Ackquille Pollard's behavior that night. While the account of Bobby scrambling to bury the firearm between the cushions of a couch has been rehashed in the media many times over, NYPD Det. Douglas Corso added a new dimension to the case by quoting the GS9 front man. “I use my gun for rap videos - I'm a rapper," Bobby reportedly told the detective during the June 2, 2014, raid.
According to Corso's response to Asst. District Attorney Nigel Farinha's examination, Shmurda presented himself as self-assured, insisting: “You can’t charge me with a loaded gun - there's no bullets in the gun," before telling him, "I know the law. I beat charges before. I have an attorney for that." The detective posed a 9mm magazine recovered with 14 rounds in it as evidence enough for why he wasn't buying the rapper's story. He also recalled Bobby allegedly fooling around and making flirtatious gestures with two females he was arrested with while being booked at the precinct. Following Corso's testimony, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Abraham Clott ruled that the prosecutor would not be allowed to use the alleged remarks as evidence at Shmurda's impending trial.
The particular case that Corso was elaborating on would eventually result in its charges against Bobby dropped. The arrest was the development of a raid on 166 Rockaway Parkway in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, over what cops say was suspected drug activity. Bobby's defense team has argued that the rapper was targeted; alleging that police could be heard mocking his music while he was in custody. While Corso remains active on the force, his credibility might be contested. The detective has reportedly been the subject of five federal civil rights lawsuits dating back to 2011.
