New York - AP - Grammy-nominated rapper Remy Ma, free on $250,000 (€180,050) bond after being accused of shooting an acquaintance in June, does not have to post more bail money despite having more problems with the law.
A judge said Wednesday she was denying a prosecutor's request to increase bail following Remy Ma's new indictment on witness tampering and gang assault charges.
The new charges relate to an Aug. 19 assault on a witness's boyfriend in a New York nightclub. Remy Ma, 26, is accused of causing several of her male friends to attack the man, blackening an eye and breaking a bone in his face.
Another man who was with the witness's boyfriend was beaten, Assistant District Attorney Jason Berland said. The man suffered a broken jaw and has a metal plate in his face, he said.
With the prosecution arguing that the rapper is a flight risk, her lawyer, Ira Fisher, said his client will surrender her passport.
Fisher said his client has pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
The prosecutor said Remy Ma, whose real name is Remy Smith, had tried to contact witnesses to the July 14 shooting, "not trying to encourage people to come forward and tell the truth, but trying to discourage people from taking the (witness) stand."
Berland said the shooting occurred after Remy Ma left a birthday party, claimed that $2,000 (€1,440) was missing from her purse, and accused Makeda Barnes-Joseph of taking it.
Remy Ma got into Barnes-Joseph's car, told her to dump the contents of her purse and, after a struggle, shot the woman twice in the abdomen, Berland said.
The rapper surrendered to police the next day, Berland said.
Remy Ma was nominated for a Grammy as part of the Terror Squad for the 2004 summer smash "Lean Back."
