MempHitz Issued Statement on Arrest


Producer Mickey “MempHitZ” Wright has had his spokespeople issue a statement regarding Wright’s recent arrest in Atlanta. MempHitZ was arrested for allegedly trying to board a plane with a handgun in his baggage.

He was arrested at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and claimed he had forgotten that the firearm was in his bag.

His team confirmed the arrest reports and addressed the controversy.

“Although [Memphitz] does have a valid license to carry the weapon, he had no intention of transporting it on the plane,” said a statement. “In his haste to make his flight, he neglected to remove the firearm from his luggage. He has since been released and is fully cooperating with the authorities. He hopes to resolve this matter quickly.”
