Rapper Winnie the Pooh just arrested for a shootout at a club in Miami … where cops say a security guard ended up being shot in an argument over money.
According to Miami-Dade County Corrections records … the rapper was taken into custody at around 2 p.m. on Tuesday under a warrant for his arrest for aggravated assault and battery with a deadly weapon … a felony .
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Miami-Dade PD was called to the King of Diamonds nightclub on May 30 at around 4 a.m. for a reported shooting.
Cops say witnesses told them security personnel were escorting Pooh out of the building when, out of nowhere, there was an altercation between Pooh and security personnel. Cops say the security official told them the beef was for money that apparently fell out of Pooh’s pants.
It is not known how much money fell, if any … but apparently it was enough to trigger Pooh, as the cops say they were told the Memphis MC pulled out his gun and fired a bullet at the ground.
Cops say one of the security guards ended up being shot in the right ankle and taken to hospital. By the time the cops showed up at the scene, they said Pooh had already bounced back.
There were rumors circulating on social media that someone stole $ 40,000 from Pooh, but the rapper put those rumors to bed, saying on IG… “false allegations, nothing was ever taken away from me.”
But, according to the cops… money is at the center of this particular incident, which resulted in one person being shot.
