Boosie Claims Ankle Monitor ‘Slipped Off,’ Offers $5,000 To Anyone Who Can Locate It
Boosie Badazz is asking for help in obtaining the ankle monitor he claims "slipped off" his leg during a cross-country plane ride.
“I WAS ON DELTA FLIGHT 0501 SEAT 8c COMING FROM ATLANTA TO LA N MY ANKLE MONITOR CHARGER SLIPPED OFF MY LEG,” Boosie wrote.
According to the Louisiana native, the ankle monitor is lost somewhere in either Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport or Los Angeles International Airport, and he needs help in getting it back, or else he’ll be “in trouble.”
According to the US government, a non-removable, waterproof, and shock-resistant GPS tracker, like the one Boosie is wearing, is placed on the ankle of a participant 24 hours a day. The participant must charge the GPS tracker daily or as directed, as it allows authorities to keep track of the wearer’s location through GPS satellites, cellular towers, and/or Wi-Fi.
Federal agents arrested Boosie in June after he was seen with a firearm tucked into his waistband while on Instagram Live, WAFB reports. The rapper, real name Torrence Hatch, was in San Diego court on a gun charge that was later dismissed. However, agents arrested him on another gun charge outside the courtroom soon after the initial gun case was done.
Boosie was charged with possession of a weapon by a felon charge and spent a week in jail before being released on bond and ordered to wear an ankle monitor. In August, his motion to dismiss the gun charge was denied.
