#Breaking: Benzino Shot Multiple Times Leaving Mothers Funeral

lead_gjicj

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Benzino was shot during his mother’s funeral procession today in Boston.

Benzino is in stable condition after being shot multiple times by his nephew 36-year-old Gia Scott.  Benzino, 48, was shot after an argument broke out.

The Boston Globe reports:

State Police said the initial report stated the shooting occurred after an argument between family members, but investigators are now working to determine what sparked the violence. In his statement, Cruz said that a person driving a Bentley shot the driver of a red Dodge SUV, who got out of his car and was taken to the Duxbury Police Department by a passerby, before being taken to the hospital.

The driver of the Bentley was arrested and charged with armed assault with intent to murder, according to Cruz. He will be arraigned Monday in Plymouth District Court. His name was not released.

Father William Williams of St. Peter’s Church in Plymouth, where the funeral procession was headed from Quincy, said that the family arrived at the church late but that the funeral was held.

When he looked out of the church to see the funeral procession arrive, he said, he saw blood smudges on the limousine and the hearse. The family was upset, he said, but did not speak about the shooting.

A section of Route 3 south in Duxbury was closed after the shooting, and State Police appeared to be questioning witnesses in cars.

State Police were re-routing southbound traffic on the highway, closing off the section between Exits 11 and 10, State Police spokesman Lieutenant Daniel Richard said Saturday afternoon.

Three Reasons Why Chris Brown Was Kick Out Of Rehab

2013 BET Awards - Show

Over the weekend Chris Brown was put back in jail for being thrown out of rehab. Until now we were asking why he was thrown out in the first place.

Apparently Chris broke 3 rules that caused him to be thrown out of rehab.

One being that he has to stay 2-feet away from women at all times. This rule is enforced because of the Rihanna case. Brown violated that rule when he touched elbows and hands with a woman.

The second violation was when Chris left the rehab facility without authorization. He was then asked to take a random drug test which h refused to take at first. He later took the test but by then it was too late so strike 2.

His third violation happened during a group session where he is said to have made a mockery of the rehab and made some rather harsh comments too.

Also Chris is said to have had sexual contact with a worker at the facility but for some strange reason that is not one of the reason why he was thrown out.

Chris is in jail without bail. His lawyer, Mark Geragos, will attempt to get him out jail on Monday.
