Complaint alleges rapper Finese2Tymes in possession of firearm at Forrest City nightclub

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A complaint filed by an attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas on Monday alleges that rapper Finese2Tymes was in possession of a firearm at a Forrest City nightclub.

On June 25, Ricky Hampton, also known as Finese2Tymes, was at Club Envy in Forrest City. According to the complaint, Hampton was leaving the club when he began screaming at a person inside a car he believed was in his way. Hampton continued screaming at the person at which point he pulled an "AK-style pistol" on the person.

The weapon in question was a Century Arms model RAS 47, 7.62 caliber pistol, which was recovered by law enforcement.

The rapper then allegedly fired a shot that broke the rear window of the driver's car. The bullet also struck the driver of that vehicle in the neck.

The firearms in connection to that case will be sent to an Arkansas crime lab to determine if the shell casings match ones found at the Power Ultra Lounge shooting in Little Rock. A total of 28 people were injured during the shooting.

Detectives with the Little Rock Police Department have traveled to Birmingham, Alabama and interviewed Finese2Tymes about the Power Ultra Lounge shooting.

Hampton was previously convicted in Tennessee for aggravated robbery. That felony offense led to a conviction, where he was sentenced to serve eight years in prison.

The investigation is being conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, U.S. Marshals Service, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
