French Montana’s music video tribute to slain rapper Chinx was interrupted on Saturday when five people, including the on-set bodyguard were arrested on guns and weapons charges.
According to the New York Daily News, 35-year-old security guard Frank Bartlett, 32-year-old Ronald James, his 27 year-old girlfriend Ebonee Eastmond, and Edward Elkins were arrested after neighbors reported to plainclothes police officers that guns and drugs, such as marijuana and cocaine, were out in the open during French Montana’s video shoot in East New York.
Another woman, Wendy Miranda, was also arrested after police found a .32-caliber revolver next to her. Bartlett was arrested due to a defaced gun on his waistband; James and Eastmond were also arrested on gun charges when the 32-year-old was seen passing a pistol to Eastmond. Elkins gun charge resulted after he was seen with a pistol in a shopping bag by his feet.
French and the rest of his Coke Boy camp were behind a local grocery store filming a video dedicated to Chinx when the arrests happened. Other rappers reportedly on set were Juelz Santana, Ja Rule, Busta Rhymes, and Noreaga.
Chinx was killed in a drive by shooting on May 17 after leaving a lounge in Queens with friend Coke Boy Yemen.
