Gunplay was arrested for allegedly pointed a gun at his wife and their six-month-old baby.
According to court documents obtained by XXL, Gunplay was arrested Saturday (Aug. 19) night on multiple charges, including aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, domestic violence, false imprisonment and child abuse. Andy Slater from Fox Sports reported that the former Maybach Music Group rapper pointed the riffle at Vonshae Taylor-Morales while she was holding their daughter after she told him to quiet down while playing Xbox.
Gunplay, whose real name is Richard Morales Jr., reportedly denied all the allegations and is currently in jail with his bail set at $20,000. "I just want everyone to know my daughter and I are safe," Vonshae wrote in lengthy Instagram post explaining what went down yesterday (Aug. 20). "Unfortunately, Richard is back using and developed a very bad drinking problem. I've tried everything in my power to help him and love him. This is a demon he has to overcome on his own. At this point, I really believe it's too late."
She continued, "To summarize last night's event. I asked Richard to quiet down as he scared the baby sleeping by yelling [while] playing Call of Duty. He started going off on me for asking him to be quiet. I tried to collect a bag so my daughter and I can go to a room while he sobers up. He didn't want us to leave and things went left fast."
"He was arrested last night, the weapon is in police custody," she added. "I have a restraining order, my daughter is in my custody and I am filing for divorce. He will never get the chance to disrespect us again." Vonshae concluded, "Thank you all for the well wishes and prayers. This is a very traumatizing experience please keep me in your prayers."
