Less than two months after a shooting outside Phillipe Chow, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s bodyguard Zachary Bunce was sentenced to three years probation for his role in the violent altercation.
Pleading guilty to one count of misdemeanor assault, Bunce was charged for igniting the brawl between Tekashi’s East Coast and West Coast representation, which ultimately led to another charged defendant being shot in the abdomen.
It’s been reported that Tekashi’s East Coast crew, led by Shottie aka Kifano Jordan, attacked Tekashi’s new management with chairs after they were denied access to the restaurant. Shottie is thought to have been the main aggressor, telling the security detail that he was going to “violate [them] both with gunshots.”
It should be noted that Shottie, as well as the gunshot victim Faheem Walter, have cases still pending over the incident. Meanwhile, for his own case, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s lawyer fully contends that the rapper is not interested in a plea deal of any kind.
Tekashi celebrated avoiding jail time for a child sex case by having dinner with friends and family and Phillippe Chow in New York, but the ordeal quickly resulted in shots being fired. Now, two men from the rapper’s crew have been hit with gang assault charges.
Police said the two men initially popped up to have dinner with the rapper, but were turned away by security. Once Tekashi left the restaurant, the two men came back and confronted the security guards, which led to issues.

According to TMZ, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s post-sentencing celebration ended after rounds of gunfire rang out at the Manhattan restaurant where he was set to meet up with an executive from 10K Records. Sources close to the situation say that an argument erupted after 6ix9ine was told only he could enter the restaurant and said his security would have to leave. During the argument, a third party walked up and let off four shots, hitting Tekashi’s bodyguard in the stomach.
