Yella Beezy can’t seem to avoid legal trouble.
According to Collin County jail records, Yella Beezy was taken into custody on Thursday (May 26). Authorities issued a warrant for his arrest in connection to a sexual assault case.
Yella Beezy, whose real name is Markies Deandre Conway, was originally arrested for sexual assault in November 2021. He was released on a $57,500 bond.
But months later, his bond was held insufficient. This could mean a number of things, including him not following a judge’s orders, missing court dates or not complying with a bondsman’s requirements.
A warrant for his arrest was issued on Wednesday (May 25). He was booked in the Collin County Jail a day later. His bond is now set at $1,000,000.
Last year, Yella Beezy was hit with a felony sexual assault charge after being accused of rape. He was also charged with abandoning or endangering a child and unlawful carrying of a weapon. He denied the allegations.
“Yall gotta stop playing on my name,” he said. “I was arrested on false allegations. I was arrested before I was even questioned and I knew about anything [that] was going on.”
Yella Beezy added, “I can’t really speak on a lot of the stuff ‘cause my lawyer advised me not to, but I just had to speak out because people get stuff misconstrued. I’ll have my day in court, I ain’t worried about nothing. Evidence is going to prove itself. Like I said, a rumor spread faster than the truth. Just trust the process.”
