taken into custody on burglary, drugs and weapons charges on Sunday (March 28) and booked into Broward County Jail in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. But according to the 18-year-old rapper, it was a big conspiracy to take him down. On Thursday (April 1), NLE Choppa fired off a lengthy statement via Twitter proclaiming his innocence, saying, To begin when you start changing lives around you and began to stand for something deep in your purpose you become a target to a certain group of people and also the devil, he wrote. During this arrest I was setup, substances were planted on me that I dont consume/use/own, my name was lied upon, and I was mistreated in the process. Every media outlet, news channel, and etc covered this story to paint a picture on a new surface Ive been working so hard to create. This case will be beat and I will walk a free man, remember its innocent until proven guilty not guilty until proven innocent. Asking my supporters to stand firm with me and allow God to do his work. Thank you and love yall dearly. Stay Woke
