This is a story of when keeping it real goes wrong.
Dallas rapper Jayson “Jay Mafia” Moore, a convicted felon, was arrested and charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was arrested and convicted of felony robbery in 2002 and sentenced to 10 years in prison but only served six months. Still, as a felon by the state, Moore couldn’t own or possess a firearm.
But, according to court documents, Moore still had plenty guns from shotguns to handguns all in videos from 2009 to 2015.
From The Dallas Morning News:
Jabari Howard, a Dallas police gang detective assigned to the ATF task force, found music videos uploaded to YouTube between 2009 and 2015 that show Moore “displaying and in possession of multiple firearms.”
“In one video, Moore is observed working the action of a shotgun, and a shotgun shell is seen expelling from the chamber,” Howard said in a criminal complaint.
Howard also learned that Moore had pawned several firearms at an Irving pawnshop in August 2015, including a shotgun and a semi-automatic rifle. He was charged in connection with those firearms.
Moore is intending to rely on the insanity defense at trial, also alleging that his arrest warrant and complaint are fraudulent. He’s also alleged that there’s a giant conspiracy against him put together by “government, law enforcement and judicial corruption.”
