Jadakiss Denies Involvment In Apartment Drug Bust

Jadakiss says he has nothing to do with activities that led to two people being arrested for drug possession in an apartment leased under his name on Saturday.

Yonkers police raided an apartment leased to the MC and found seven pounds of marijuana, five grams of heroin and about $42,000 in cash, along with “other items,” according to a police press release. They were led to a building at 1 Van Der Donk Street after housing-unit officers stopped a suspicious vehicle out front on Friday.

According to the report, an investigation “revealed the presence of marijuana inside the vehicle.” The driver was arrested and a passenger was taken in after a short foot pursuit.

On Wednesday (August 26), Jadakiss told MTV News that he was not present at the time and has not visited the home for months.

“What happened on Saturday was an unfortunate situation, but one in which I have no involvement in,” ‘Kiss told MTV News exclusively Wednesday afternoon. “Since the release of my recent album Last Kiss, I have been on the road touring and promoting my project. I am focused on my performance schedule and career.”

Gabriel R. Henriquez, 39, was charged with second-degree criminal possession of marijuana, second degree assault and obstructing governmental administration in the second-degree. Alberto Lajara, 25, was taken into custody for criminal possession of marijuana in the fifth degree and disorderly conduct, according to the report. Yonkers police say the investigation is ongoing.

‘Kiss has, indeed, been on the road this summer. While a tour planned with Cam’ron dubbed “The Bosses” did not take place, the pair performed several concerts together.

Eminem’s Brother Sentenced For DUI

The younger brother of Eminem was ordered today to community service, alcohol monitoring and to refrain from operating his vehicle for three months during sentencing for a drunken driving offense.

A 41-A District Court judge ruled Nathan Mathers, 23, will pay $1,000 in fines and costs by Friday or face 100 days in jail on his conviction of operating while visibly impaired, second offense.

Other terms of the sentence include 18 months reporting probation, attendance of an outpatient program for drugs and alcohol, tether monitoring for alcohol consumption and 100 hours community service, court officials said.

Mathers of Clinton Township pleaded guilty to the charge last month. He was originally facing a charge of operating while intoxicated, second offense, court officials said today.

Mathers failed to pull over for an ambulance before failing sobriety tests April 15 in Macomb Township. His blood-alcohol level was 0.16, twice the legal limit.

The arrest came just 15 days after he was convicted of a separate alcohol-related offense in Clinton Township’s district court.
