Rapper Charged With Kidnapping
UGK Records rapper "Ivory P" who enjoys portraying the image of a "pimp" was arrested for taking his pimp game too far as in across state lines!
He allegedly got a 19-year-old girl from Huntsville, Alabama to go with him based on dreams of pixie dust but after one day the "pimp" emerged.
Ivory P allegedly drove to Lake Charles, Louisiana and tried to sell the woman as an online escort which is when she called the "Batcave" and her mother alerted police about the f*ckery!
This fool and his alleged girlfriend were arrested and slapped with human trafficking and kidnapping charges!
LAKE CHARLES, LOUISIANA - Ivory Charles Pantallion III, 33, of Beaumont and 24-year-old Jessica Lynne Morgan of Shelbyville, Tenn., were arrested on human trafficking and simple kidnapping charges, according to the Lake Charles police department.
Ivory P is listed as a UGK Records artist on the label's Facebook page.
According to the rapper's own Ivory Pimping Facebook page, his favorite quote is "PIMPIN IS NOT A CONTACT SPORT, SO DON'T TOUCH ME !"
The quote is attributed to Pimp C, who is known for his work alongside Houston rapper Bun B.
The arrests came after the mother of a 19-year-old woman from Huntsville, Ala., reported her daughter missing late last week.
According to a news release from the Lake Charles police, the woman left Huntsville willingly, but when the trio arrived in Beaumont, things took a turn.
"Once they arrived in Beaumont, the victim's phone was taken away and she was given a prepaid phone," said Lake Charles deputy chief Mark Kraus in the news release.
"The victim was shown her personal web page on an internet site advertising her as an escort and was told she would provide escort services for men.
After one night in Beaumont, the victim and suspects traveled to Lake Charles.
Once in (Lake Charles), the suspects established another personal web page advertising the victim as an escort in the Lake Charles area."
"After fearing for her life, the victim contacted her mother and advised her of her location and movements in an attempt to obtain help in escaping from the suspects.
Lake Charles officers worked with the parents and were able to locate the victim and safely secure her uninjured."
The victim was released to her parents.
Pantallion and Morgan were arrested at the Lake Charles casino on Monday.
Pantallion's bond has been set for $1 million. Morgan's was set at $500,000.
