The rumor that went around the internet all day yesterday is true. Lloyd Banks is in Police custody as I speak. MTV has confirmed it.
Sergeant Brad Finucan of the Waterloo Regional Police’s Criminal Investigations branch told MTV News on Sunday (January 10) that Banks (real name: Christopher Lloyd) and three associates got into a dispute with the promoter at a local hotel over payment for performance and an appearance fee. The promoter’s name was withheld by police.
The promoter alleged that early Saturday morning the lyricist and three associates — Nicklas Sloane, Shawn McGee, and Tyrell Cooper — held him in his hotel room against his will, assaulted and robbed him. All four men were charged with forceful confinement, aggravated assault and robbery. The four made a video court appearance on Sunday afternoon (January 10) and are due to appear in court again early this week. They remained in police custody at press time.
I’m sure 50 is not very pleased.
