Five Arrested on Set of French Montana Video Shoot

An alleged video shoot for a Chinx tribute ends in arrests

The New York Daily News is reporting that during a French Montana video shoot, attended by Busta Rhymes, Ja Rule, and an additional 100-plus people, police made five arrests after bystanding residents reported seeing open illegal activity, including the exposure of drugs and guns. Cocaine, molly, marijuana were discovered upon the police’s arrival, and handguns were reportedly being passed around.

The report indicates that the video being shot was possibly a tribute to Chinx, the Coke Boys rapper and close friend of French Montana. Chinx was murdered two weeks ago while he sat in his car in Far Rockaway.

Busta and Ja Rule were not among the people arrested. We’ll update this story with more details once they become available.
