In December 2019, a drunken Obie Trice was arrested in Commerce Township, Michigan after a neighbor heard what sounded like an argument coming from his home and called the police. When officers arrived on the scene, they spoke to the Eminem affiliate and a woman living in the house.
They said the woman’s 18-year-old son jumped in the middle of the argument, a gun went off and the son was shot in the groin area. The teen then drove himself to a local hospital for treatment and has since been released. Trice was ultimately charged with a misdemeanor, avoiding the more serious charge of felony assault. Consequently, hee spent 90 days behind bars at Oakland County Jail.
More recently, Trice was held for contempt of court, a complaint issued by the Oakland County Circuit Court for violating a personal protection order. The pending case was reassigned to another judge last month.
