Arrest Made in Carjacking of Singer Bobby V

Bobby V carjacked

Update: An arrest has been made in the carjacking of pint size R&B singer Bobby V, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Police say the “Slow Down” singer was approached by two black males wearing hoodies as he parked his 2013 Bentley at the Hot Beats studio on Spring Street in midtown Atlanta Tuesday night. One of the men pointed a gun at his head and demanded his car. Bobby V did not resist, and the thugs drove off in his vehicle.

The Bentley was later found abandoned at the nearby Arts Center MARTA Station with minor damage to one of the front wheels. Bobby V, whose real name is Robert Wilson, was able to identify one of the suspects. Police are withholding the suspect’s identification until the second suspect is in custody.

Hot Beats recording studio was the scene of a tragic shooting in 2009. Adair Freeman, 19, was shot twice in the chest by two men who demanded his fake diamond chain.

Melvin Bardwell, 25, was arrested in that case and charged with homicide and aggravated robbery.

The Hot Beats studio, located at 1200 Spring Street, is owned by Adair Freeman’s father Russell Freeman.

      I saw this! The news reporters for AJC reported that his “Bentley” was hijacked… I was like, “Wow. Must be nice to still be getting royalties off of Slow Down and Blackberry Molasses”. Glad he’s ok. At least he didn’t try to fight them for it…Cars can be replaced!

      I hope he has an IRA, 401K, 10 year CD and a few Variable Annuities to go along with that car.

      Bobby V might not be on top but he puts out consistently good albums. He’s like Avant…stay putting records out that no one knows about. Pandora reminded me of his classics, even some new ones. I’m glad he’s unharmed.

      A Marine, who was the first to reveal that Beyonce had lip-synced her way through her National Anthem performance at Barack Obama’s Inauguration this week, has fallen victim to an online death hoax.

      A report posted by a fake Fox News account, sent Twitter into overdrive on Wednesday afternoon when they claimed that a Marine Corps band officer had been found dead, sharing a link to the real news website, with the tweet: “Marine Corps band officer who accused Beyonce of lip syncing found dead in hotel room.”

      Beyonce has received intense backlash for using a backing track at the Inauguration (MAI / Splash News)

      However, it soon emerged that the report was indeed fake and just an attempt to add more scandal to the miming controversy, and possibly to mimic the aftermath of the now-infamous prank pulled by two Australian DJs on a nurse who killed herself days after.

      Beyonce has been slammed by fans for reportedly using a pre-recorded track of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ during her performance at Barack Obama’s Inauguration on Monday, however, a source close to the diva says she “doesn’t see anything wrong” with not singing live.

      “She didn’t think there was anything wrong with it,” a source told Us Weekly.

      “Pavarotti has done it! It was freezing out, and if she messed up just one note, that would have been the story.”

      “Everybody uses these tracks, and the music director advised it. Any big outdoor live performance is almost always with some kind of track.”

      “She did sing, but used a track. A technicality which everybody does took away from the beauty of the moment,” the source added.

      I get my car serviced at the gas station right next door to the Hot Beats studio by my friend and master mechanic Hawk. The last time I went there for my emissions test last year, I spoke with Hawk about the 2009 shooting. Everyone at the gas station carries guns for their protection. You would think the studio would be more diligent about security considering the owner’s son was killed there. :coffee:

      :offtopic: While states across America tighten laws on drunk driving, a county in southwest Ireland has RELAXED its drinking and driving laws to allow rural residents to drive home from the local pub after a few pints.

      Kerry County Council passed a controversial motion on Monday, with a vote of five to three, to support the creation of a special permit that will allow rural drinkers to drive after having “two or three drinks,” the Guardian.co.uk reports.

      The law was heralded by independent councillor Danny Healy-Rae, who claims it will help prevent depression and suicide in isolated country areas. He argued that rural residents are driving on roads with very little traffic and claims they “have never killed anyone,” while fighting to bring back a social outlet for lonely people that had been lost thanks to ever stricter drink-drive laws.
