Dougie B was just detained outside Bronx Criminal Court on March 31 after an incident in the parking lot. After a ruckus in the E. 161st St. parking lot, he was arrested on unspecified charges. The incident happened as a group of guys were fighting in the parking lot. One group started pursuing the other, and a guy took out a pistol and fired a shot. However, no one was hurt in the incident, and no charges were brought.
The report was corroborated by authorities, who claimed there was a vehicle accident and that bullets were fired at one time. However, no one was harmed. The rapper was scheduled to appear in court on Thursday afternoon in connection with a separate shooting case.
A lady told The Washington Post that she overheard an altercation between a group of boys and then heard a gunshot. She continued,
“So insane that it happened directly in front of the Bronx Supreme Court?” What did they believe would happen? They weren’t going anywhere.”
All About Dougie B
The rapper, also known as Douglas Kieshwan Sheref Whitehead, grew up in a huge household. He remembers his father listening to and playing Nas and Jay Z songs. The 25-year-old Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, native was born on September 7, 1996. He became interested in music and started listening to musicians such as Nas, Jay-Z, Scarface, Biggie Smalls, Tupac Shakur, and KRS-One.
During his adolescence, he was exposed to his uncle’s Music Development for the Youth program, where he learned the creative process of composing a song as well as how the studio equipment works. That’s when he fell in love with producing and began working on his first beat.

The rapper was arrested only one day after filming a music video with Cardi B in the Bronx. Before 1 p.m., court officials and New York Daily News reporters heard one gun fired near the East 161st Street parking lot as lawyers and court personnel were leaving for lunch. According to a court official, cops raced across the street and arrested a large number of people. Dougie B was one of four persons who were carried away in handcuffs.
