Gunplay Arrested For Pointing Gun at Wife & Child



Over the weekend, MMG rapper Gunplay found himself in police custody after allegedly pointing a rifle in the direction of his spouse and their infant child.

The Miami-based rapper was apprehended on Saturday evening (August 19). He faces charges including severe assault with a lethal weapon, domestic abuse, false detainment, and child endangerment. This incident was supposedly sparked by his wife’s request for him to lower his volume while engaged in an Xbox game.

Gunplay, whose legal name is Richard Morales Jr., has reportedly refuted all allegations. He is currently incarcerated with bail set at $20,000.

On Monday (August 20), Gunplay’s wife, Vonshae Taylor-Morales, take to Instagram to recount the harrowing experience. She accused him of frightening their child during a game of Call of Duty. She further claimed that he struggles with alcoholism and disclosed her intentions to seek a divorce for the safety of herself and their daughter.

“I just want everyone to know my daughter and I are safe,” she wrote. “Unfortunately, Richard is back using and developed a very bad drinking problem. I’ve tried everything in my power to help him and love him.”

“To summarize last night event. I asked Richard to quiet down as he scared the baby sleeping by yelling playing call of duty. He started going off on me for asking him to be quiet.”

“I tried to collect a bag so my daughter and I can go to a room while he sobers up. He didn’t want us to leave and things went left fast.”

“He was arrested last night, the weapon is in police custody. I have a restraining order, my daughter is in my custody and I am filing for divorce. He will never get the chance to disrespect us again.”

She concluded saying;

“Thank you all for the well wishes and prayers. This is a very traumatizing experience please keep me in your prayers.”
