Description of Crime:
The police did not have enough evidence to charge C-Murder on the night of the incident however he was later charged after he was arrested for disturbing the peace and criminal trespassing at the New Orleans House of Blues where he had been banned from entering due to a previous incident.
The rapper was out on bond when the Plantinum Club incident occurred for a previous charge of attempted murder in Baton Rouge. There C-Murder allegedly fired his gun outside of a club when a doorman refused to let him enter without submitting to a physical search.
