Upcoming Plies Concert Raises Security Concerns in Downtown Gainesville
GAINESVILLE - In 2006, five of his fans were hurt when police say members of the rapper, Plies' entourage opened fire inside the nightclub.
Plies will return to Gainesville in less than a month for a concert.
Plies' attorney Robert Rush says, "A fight broke out that he was ultimately not a part of, he was sued and we ultimately prevailed."
Chris Chestnut, the prosecuting attorney during these proceedings disagrees with the verdict and says he plans on doing something about it.
"We are appealing because the jury spoke loud and clear," Chestnut said. "Plies and his entourage are responsible for shooting five innocent people."
Plies has scheduled a concert for September 1.
