With the world focusing on police brutality and police killings across the US an amateur Memphis Rapper named Blac Youngster decided to try and boast his career on the backs of Mike Brown, Tamir Rice, Mario Woods, and Sandra Bland and seize the opportunity. The public outcry was in support of this Mr. Blac Youngster who stated he was harassed by police simply because he withdrew a lot of cash. The only problem, he doesn’t have an account at the bank and he didn’t have $200k he had $70k. Now where did this guy get $70,000, because it was definitely not from record sales.
Here is what the bank had to say about him.
Official Statement from Wells Fargo Bank:
Mr. Benson (Blac Youngster) is not an account holder with us. He did not enter our store nor did he make any withdrawals.
And here is the police statement from Atlanta PD.

On January 8, 2016, Atlanta Police Officers were dispatched to the Wells Fargo Bank, 3235 Peachtree Road, Atlanta, Georgia. The 911 caller stated that a male was trying to cash a forged check valued at $24,000 . The description of the male provided to police was limited and conflicting.
The Video Integration Center (VIC) using the camera system were able to get a visual of a possible suspect inside a car in the parking lot of the bank. This information was relayed to officers on the scene. The car was stopped and everyone inside the car was briefly detained. It was quickly discovered that the person providing the description to police had provided the wrong description of the suspect. It was determined that the occupants of the vehicle were not involved. They were immediately released.
The caller identified Mr. Charles Darnell Edward (03/02/1976) as the male attempting to cash the fraudulent $24,000 CHECK. Mr. Edwards was arrested at the scene and charged with forgery in the first degree (felony).
The Rapper, who identified himself as “Blac Youngsta”, by coincidence happened to be at the bank at the same time. Upon police officers arriving on scene, they made a brief detention of him until a positive identification by the caller was made. This incident did not directly involved Blac Youngsta, nor was he accused of committing a crime.
