Legal Issues[edit]

Police Shooting[edit]

In 1996, 40 Glocc was wounded in a shootout with police officers in the Abor Terrace housing projects in Colton, California. Although 40 has denied firing a gun at the police, he was arrested and charged with attempted murder of a police officer.[11]

Gang Injunction[edit]

In October 2010, a California judge ruled 40 Glocc, who is a member of the Colton City Crips, will be included in an injunction prohibiting 40 gang members from congregating near the Arbor Terrace Apartments In Colton, California. The Arbor Terrace Apartments in Colton is said to be their headquarters where the county's district attorney said members hang out, package and sell drugs – 40 Glocc being one of them. Police believe the Gang is also behind numerous shootings throughout the city as well as murders. The gang is also involved in illegal gambling, robbery, and prostitution. [12]

In their filings, officers also describe Colton City Crips throwing Molotov cocktails at Arbor Terrace management for towing their cars, enlisting children as drug lookouts and threatening to burn apartments if residents don't allow them to be used as hideouts. Gang members have been convicted of shooting people for not giving up a cigarette. [11]


In 1995, 40 Glocc was arrested under suspicion of attempted murder of a police officer after a shootout in Colton, California. He was not charged, but was wounded in the shooting.[11]

On December 16, 2009, 40 Glocc and members of Zoo Life were questioned by police in Times Square, New York City, for a shooting that took place outside of an MTV Building. No charges were ever filed. [13]

On January 24, 2011, 40 Glocc was arrested in San Bernardino on suspicion of various weapons violations after he was carrying a loaded-9mm handgun in a sports utility vehicle. 40, who was identified by the police as a Colton City Crip member, was arrested a block away from the Arbor Terrace Apartments, an area he and other gang members are banned from congregating near under a 2008 court injunction. Police were patrolling the area when they approached 40 Glocc and several other people loitering near a carport area. 40 Glocc was sitting in a black Range Rover with other gang members when police found the gun. He was later released on $100,000 bail. On October 19, 2011, the charges were dropped due to lack of evidence. [14]

On October 3, 2011, 40 Glocc was arrested in Las Vegas and charged with 3 counts of domestic battery by strangulation and coercion with force. 40 allegedly hit his girlfriend several times around the head, face, legs, and rib area and choking her to the point she could not speak or breathe. Once he fell asleep, she was able to sneak away and dial 911. Police arrested 40 as he was trying to flee his home. The woman claims 40 had been assaulting her for over a year and she was afraid to go to the law, in fear she might be killed. [15]


In June 2008, a video was posted online of 40 Glocc holding two diamond Young Money necklaces, previously taken from Young Money recording artist Tyga. 40 Glocc held the necklaces for ransom after a fellow member of his entourage took them from Tyga. Both necklaces were reportedly bought back by Lil Wayne in "Cash Money". [16]

In October 2009, a video was posted online showing 40 Glocc and members of his Zoo-Life Crip Gang showing up to Florida rapper Plies' video shoot to test his street credibility. The video shoot, which also featured Jamie Foxx, was being filmed in L.A. Jamie Foxx, who was standing next to Plies when he was about to be approached by 40 Glocc, confirms that Plies ran towards the bathrooms and locked himself inside. He claims Plies was afraid for his life and returned to the video shoot wearing no jewelry. [17]

In May 2011, 40 Glocc and Blackwall Street's Compton Menace got into a physical altercation during the Cage vs. Cons event at the L.A. Sports Arena in Los Angeles. The fight allegedly stemmed from G-Unit and Blackwall Street having a long lasting dispute. [18]

The Game Vs 40 Glocc Lawsuit[edit]

In July 2012, 40 Glocc was involved in a physical and verbal altercation with The Game and his friends outside of a mansion in Hollywood, California. The altercation was widely viewed online, in which Game punches 40 Glocc, questions him on his social media activity and tells him to fight back. 40 Glocc is apparently hesitant in fighting due to a considerable size difference, and apparently screams that he got ganged up on. 40 released a track aimed at Game titled "The Full Edit" after Game heavily mentions him on his Jesus Piece album. [19] 40 Glocc would subsequently follow this with filing a lawsuit for $4.54 million for assault and battery, as well as damages to his reputation. The lawsuit sought: $500,000 in pain and suffering; $500,000 in emotional distress; $750,000 in lost earnings; $2 million for punitive damages; $25,000 in medical expenses; among others.[20][21] He won the lawsuit and was awarded $3000, which was inconsequential compared to the amount he claimed for.[22]
