This is not Obie Trice’s first run-in with the law. Back in July of 2020, the now 44-year-old rapper spent 90 days in jail for shooting a man in the groin during an argument in December of 2019.
According to authorities, Trice shot the son of his then 40-year-old girlfriend, who was living with him at the time. Police were called to Trice's residence after neighbors heard someone screaming in the home. When police arrived, Trice’s girlfriend informed authorities that they got into a heated argument and her son got in the middle of it, and apparent a gun accidentally discharged, hitting the then 18-year-old male in his groin. The woman’s son did survive his injuries. Since then, Obie Trice has stayed relativity out of trouble until now.
