Pooh Shiesty’s latest adventure Miami has left the 1017 rapper behind bars.

On Tuesday (June 8), Pooh was arrested in Miami after a May 30 shooting at King of Diamonds nightclub where a security guard was shot. The rapper was booked on a felony charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

According to TMZ, witnesses saw Pooh be escorted out of the club when he got into an argument with a security guard. The dispute between the two was over money missing from Pooh’s jeans. Not long after the incident kicked off, Pooh let off a warning shot. The bullet wound up hitting a security guard in the ankle.

According to court documents, the security guard told police he was attempted to escort Pooh out of the club after his show when someone attempted to grab stray dollar bills from the rapper’s back pocket. The handling angered Pooh, who then got back on stage at the Miami strip club and publicly wanted to know who attempted to steal from him.

The security guard says he saw Pooh’s gun in his waistband and warned Pooh to hide it and not take it out. He attempted again to escort Pooh from the strip club safely but then Pooh opened fire, shooting back into the area and hitting the guard in the ankle. The guard claims by attempting to dive out of the way, he’s lucky to only have been shot in the ankle.

The incident is the second major arrest for Pooh in recent months. Last October, the “Back In Blood” star was arrested following an incident where he allegedly shot a man during a botched sneaker transaction. The shooting, which took place in Bay Harbor, Florida, left two men wounded. He was charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault and theft in the case which has yet to be resolved.

Pooh was granted a $10,000 bond in the KOD shooting case but will remain behind bars until Thursday (June 10), when he’s scheduled to appear in court on the Bay Harbor shooting case. He previously pleaded not guilty to those charges.
