  • Boogie was arrested for a misdemeanour assault and strangulation

Savannah found an article on Boogie, and read out its contents, during the June 3 episode of Growing Up Hip Hop. She read:

It says he got violent with her and shoved her head onto the bed, get on top of her. He grabs her by the throat and chokes her. He completed a 12-week anger management course as part of the plea deal.

A report by the NY Post revealed that Boogie was arrested several years ago.

It states Boogie was charged with misdemeanour assault and strangulation for “allegedly squeezing his girlfriend’s neck as they argued” in 2013.

During his time on GUHH, Boogie revealed he was arrested another time.

When else was Boogie arrested?

According to a TMZ report, Boogie was also arrested in 2016, after the police saw him straddling lanes and weaving.

He was seen talking to his dad about why he got “locked up” on Growing Up Hip Hop, shortly after the arrest in May 2016.

Boogie told his father Damon Dash:

I was dropping Dave [his manager] off after the club last night. They said that I was swerving. They made me do a couple [of] tests and they did the breathalyser and I passed.

His father asked if he was drunk, to which Boogie replied: “No, not one bit.” Boogie then revealed that they tested his blood, and took his fingerprint.

Damon Dash said: “So, that means they found something in your blood.” Boogie then responded by saying: “I guess so, yeah.”
