Whew chile, some headlines literally make you do a double take! That was likely the reaction most people had when reading that Tupac Shakur was recently arrested for meth possession—but it’s not the hip hop icon we all know and love because this Tupac is…white.
It’s been 23 years since the greatest of all-time, rapper/actor Tupac Shakur, passed away at the young age of 25—and while there have been endless rumors about him possibly still being alive, most of us have accepted the reality. However, seeing a recent headline that he was recently arrested on a meth charge left many fans beyond puzzled. As it turns out, yes Tupac Shakur was arrested, but it happened to be a white man with the same name, according to @tmz_tv.
White Tennessee resident, Tupac A. Shakur, was initially arrested after allegedly threatening local police with a knife. Officers reportedly responded to a call regarding the 40-year-old man, due to multiple warrants out for his arrest. Upon trying to detain him, he turned toward the officers with a blade in his hand. Shakur was promptly arrested and when cops searched him, they found evidence of drugs, including a syringe and multiple bags of meth.
He was charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, simple possession of meth and unlawful drug paraphernalia. He is currently still in jail and being held on $18,000 bond by the Johnson City Police Department.
This is yet another case of truth being much stranger than fiction.
Roommates, what are your thoughts on this?
