Jay Z is one of the biggest stars on the planet making his name first through music and later through entrepreneurial breakthroughs that separated him from his peers.
A Houston man was, perhaps, trying to get his mini-mogul on by selling some Jay Z tickets on Craigslist. Court documents say the male told police that he could not go to the concert, so he posted eight tickets for sale on Craigslist. The ticket seller was contacted on December 15, 2013 by a buyer and they agreed to meet at a Starbucks.
Court documents go on to say that the man met with two women, later identified as Denitra Sherrelle Green, 20, and Cessica Desha Darden who asked the man to meet them outside of the Starbucks because they had a baby in the car. Green was driving, Darden was in the passenger seat and the baby was in the back seat.
As the man leaned into the passenger window to show the women the tickets, Green punches the gas and speeds off. The man, however, got stuck in the door, pulling his feet off the ground as the car sped out of the parking lot.
Darden began kicking his arm to try to get him off the car as witnesses were able to write down the license plate number of the car speeding down the street with the man still hanging on to the passenger side of the car. The baby was still in the backseat.
Eventually, the man fell off of the car and was ran over, breaking his left arm, right hand, right leg, a torn right knee and severe road rash to his face and body.
You will never guess where the police arrested the two women. Police picked up and arrested Green and Darden at the Jay Z concert sitting in the seats from the stolen tickets and they were picked out of a line up by a man and his girlfriend who witnessed the ticket seller trying to hold on to the car as it was speeding down the street. Crazy!!
Green and Darden are both charged with aggravated robbery with bond set at $30,000 for each of them.
Now I like Jay Z too but not enough to possibly kill another person or ruin my own life. What would you do for some Jay Z tickets?
