D.C. Rapper Shy Glizzy Arrested In Maryland

By Ally Schweitzer


D.C. rapper Shy Glizzy was arrested in downtown Silver Spring, Maryland, Monday evening.

The 22-year-old MC legally named Marquis Amonte King was charged with disorderly conduct, failure to obey a reasonable and lawful order, obstructing and hindering, riot and resisting arrest.

The rapper posted bond and was released today, according to Montgomery County court records.

Videos taken at the scene Monday (watch below) show police pressing Glizzy into the hood of a car and pushing him into the back of a police vehicle while the rapper shouts at officers.

XXL — who recently featured Glizzy on the cover of its annual Freshman Class issue — got in touch with Glizzy’s manager, who told the magazine, “Yes, he good, just dumb s**t.”
