"PoopGangsta" Goes to Jail: UPDATE


Yo. PoopGangsta got 12 years yesterday.

Back in May, Poop pleaded guilty to two counts of felonious assault and one count of having weapons under disability — all answered in front of  Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Cassandra Collier-Williams. (See below.)

Separately, he pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery, two counts of forfeiture of a weapon, abduction, improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle, theft and aggravated riot.


Feb. 2 Update: You guys, PoopGangsta has been arrested, according to the News-Herald and the Euclid PD Facebook page. We now return to a bunch of stories about snow.


(Original story: January 1, 2015) — If you missed it during the holiday week slog, authorities are on the lookout for Tyrice Bowens, a 26-year-old man suspected of attempted murder in a shooting on Christmas Eve at a bar in Euclid.

Depending on your level of familiarity with Bowens, you might know him better as PoopGangsta, which is his Twitter handle. 

There was also an Instagram account by the same name, but it's since been deleted.

You can read more of the details over at The Smoking Gun.
