DC Rapper Arrested After Car Crashes Into Capitol Building Barriers

On Monday (Nov. 6), the United States Capitol Police (USCP) released a statement regarding the arrest of Washington, D.C. rapper Baby Jamo. The rapper, whose real name is Ricardo Glass, was taken into custody along with another man named Onosetale Okojie after crashing into the barricades of the Capitol building. The incident occurred in the vicinity of the government building.

This proposed legislation has been put forward to prevent the unjust and often unfair use of rap lyrics against defendants in court. The RAP Act recognizes that rap music is a form of creative expression and should not be used as a tool to incriminate individuals. If passed, this act would set an important precedent for protecting the rights of artists and ensuring that their lyrics are not taken out of context for legal purposes.

According to the press release, the United States Capitol Police first noticed the car of the two individuals “idling” at a green light and suspected the driver to be impaired. However, upon approaching the vehicle, the officers were met with the sudden acceleration of the car, causing it to crash into the barricades of the building. The pair quickly exited the car and attempted to flee, but they were promptly apprehended by the police.

During their investigation, law enforcement officers discovered a “giggle switch” gun in the vehicle, which can convert a regular firearm into a machine gun. Additionally, a Glock handgun with a 22-round magazine was found in the passenger seat. The authorities also uncovered that the Infiniti Q50 they searched was reported stolen from Prince George’s County, Maryland.

According to a press release, the individuals are facing multiple charges, including carrying a pistol without a license (x2), unauthorized use of a vehicle, unlawful entry of a motor vehicle, receiving stolen property $1000 or more, possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device, fleeing from a law enforcement officer in a motor vehicle, felon in possession, reckless driving, no permit, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, possession of unregistered ammunition, obliterate, remove, change or alter the serial number of a firearm, and unlawful possession of a machine gun.

Mel D. Cole, the photographer, manages to capture the chaos and frenzy of the Capitol Hill raid with precision and skill. His photographs depict the madness that ensued on that fateful day, showcasing the emotions and actions of the people involved. Cole’s ability to capture the raw essence of the moment in his photos is nothing short of impressive. He has managed to document history in a way that is both captivating and powerful. His work is a testament to the importance of photography in capturing the truth and conveying it to the world.

According to Assistant Chief Sean Gallagher of the USCP, the arrest of both Glass and Okojie is a testament to the Capitol’s law enforcement’s “vigilance.”

Gallagher praised the officers for their vigilance and determination in apprehending dangerous criminals. He stated that their efforts are a testament to their dedication to keeping the Capitol Complex safe.
