Rapper Gunplay is now officially off the hook after robbing accountant. Although the whole incident was captured on surveilance, charges have been dropped because the victiim refuses to cooperate with authorities.
Officials say they need the victim to confirm that the footage is accurate to use as evidence against Gunplay, which was accused of pulling a fire arm on the victim and stealing a cell phone and gold chain.
The Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office tells TMZ, "Video alone is not enough to convict an individual of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt." The office continues, "Although the armed robbery is captured on the victim's surveillance system, the victim, Turron Woodside, is uncooperative of the prosecution of this defendant Richard Morales [Gunplay]."
The State Attorney's Office says the judge subpoenaed Woodside but prosecutors were unable to find him in order to serve him. Officials say Woodside's family and co-workers have told the court "he's out of town and/or coping with a family death" along with other excuses.
The judge made it clear ... without Woodside's testimony, prosecutors couldn't make their case, and they were forced to drop the charges.
He tells us, "Today I am grateful and blessed that the case was dismissed ... I plan on picking up where I left off with my music and making hits with my upcoming debut album ... The first thing I am going to do today is smoke a joint, relax, play video games, and just be with my loved ones."
Gunplay was charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault.
