A$AP Bari Dodges Jail by Pleading Guilty to Marijuana Possession Charge

The co-founder of A$AP Mob found himself being charged with two felonies and five misdemeanors back in 2018 after Pennsylvania police discovered 24 tins of weed in his Mercedes.

AceShowbiz - A$AP Mob affiliate A$AP Bari has avoided jail after cutting a deal with prosecutors and pleading guilty to a misdemeanour marijuana possession charge.

The fashion designer, who co-founded the New York rap crew, was originally charged with two felonies and five misdemeanours, after he was stopped by police officers in Palmer Township, Pennsylvania last year (2018).

Prosecutors from the Northampton County District Attorney's Office tell TMZ the rapper agreed on a deal and appeared in court to plead guilty to a single misdemeanour charge of possession of marijuana.

According to the gossip site, Bari, real name Jabari Shelton, will be fined $4,000 (£3,100) and has not been placed on probation.

Officers stopped him in his Mercedes when he was allegedly driving in the wrong direction. They performed a search after smelling a strong odour of the drug and reportedly found 24 tins of weed.

The hip-hop entrepreneur was taken into custody in and booked for crimes, including two felony charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver weed, and criminal conspiracy to commit to possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

The conclusion of his latest legal trouble comes three months after he appeared a British court in January and plead guilty to sexually assaulting a woman at a London hotel in 2017, after video footage emerged of the incident. He was ordered to pay a $5,300 (£4,000) fine, as well as $3,300 (£2,500) compensation to his victim, and $3,300 in court costs.
