Rapper Remy Ma Arrested on Charges of Attempted Murder

Bronx breaded hip hop artist Remy Ma, whose real name is Remy Smith, was arrested Saturday on charges of attempted murder in a shooting outside a Manhattan nightspot, according to police. The 26-year-old Grammy nominated rapper had been sought for questioning in the shooting of a 23-year-old woman early Saturday after a verbal dispute near a bar in the Meatpacking District. Smith reported to police Saturday evening and was also arrested on charges of assault and criminal possession of a weapon, police said. The rapper’s manager said Saturday that she could not talk and referred calls to Remy Ma’s attorney, who was with the rapper as she reported to police. “I ask everyone to keep an open mind,” attorney Scott Leemon said. “Things are not always as they seem.” He said an arraignment would be likely be held on Sunday. A 911 call reporting gunfire led police to a woman with a gunshot wound. Three blocks away, officers discovered a luxury SUV owned by Remy Ma; the vehicle had been involved in a single-car crash and abandoned, police said.
