His arrest was mandated by a warrant issued by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department.
The rapper Blueface, real name Jonathan Porter, was detained by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department on Tuesday (November 15) for firing a gun into an occupied building and for attempted murder with a dangerous weapon. According to a statement from the LVMPD, the accusations are related to a gunshot on October 8.
Pitchfork has contacted the representatives of Blueface and the Las Vegas Metro Police Department for comments.
Following a traffic check in February, Blueface was taken into custody in California for possessing a pistol. He was sought after by the police in 2021 after being seen on tape assaulting a bouncer at a bar in California who had reportedly refused him admittance without an ID.
Blueface was charged with one felony count of carrying a loaded pistol unregistered (either on his person or in a vehicle) in 2019. In the end, the charge was withdrawn in October of that year.
