Brooklyn rapper Fivio Foreign has reportedly been arrested following a brief struggle with Fort Lee Police Department in New Jersey.
Fivio’s real name (Maxie Ryles III) had left his 2018 Mercedes Benz running in a no-parking zone as he went into the nearby Citibank on Wednesday night (April 21) around 7:30 p.m. local time. When sergeant Howard Ginsburg with the vehicle as Officer Gabriel Avella chased after Fivio as he jaywalked across the street. Fivio “acknowledged but ignored him and continued to walk away,” then began running toward The Modern luxury apartments on Park Avenue. That’s where Avella caught up to him in a parking garage as a loaded 25-caliber handgun fell from his waistband. The serial number on the gun had reportedly been scrubbed off, making it impossible to trace.
Backup officers helped force Fivio into handcuffs and then secured the weapon, while Avella was transported to a local hospital for a minor wound.
Fivio Foreign was taken to Bergen County jail in Hackensack and charged with weapons possession, having a defaced firearm and resisting arrest.
His first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack is scheduled for Thursday (April 22). The Bergen County Jail website indicates he is still in custody as of press time.
