Waka Flocka Flamehas been ordered to pay half-a-million dollars, $501,000 to be exact, as a result of ashootingthat happened in North Carolina last year.
As we previously reported, the trouble started when Wacka Flocka took his tour bus to a car stereo installation shop in Charlotte, North Carolina. Waka was looking to upgrade the sound system on the bus when he noticed two suspicious vehicles entering the store’s parking lot. Waka was wearing more than $100,000 worth of jewelry at the time.
Waka’s security teamed reportedly began firing shots when three men exited the suspicious vehicles, claiming the trio made threats against the ATL rapper. In the beginning, police believed the shooting was a result of a shootout between Waka and the victim Antonio Stukes.
Stukes was also initially charged with attempted armed robbery, amongst other things. However, the charges were dropped due to insufficient evidence.
Stukes’ lawyer says his client was only trying to hand Waka Flocka his demo CD when he was shot for no good reason. A court agreed that Stukes should be compensated for being shot in the shoulder and ordered Waka and his mother’s management companyMizay Entertainmentto pay up.
