A former music executive and reality television star is accused of pulling a gun at a north Fulton County car wash and demanding his marijuana be returned, police said Friday.
Mickey “Memphitz” Wright, of Atlanta, had his white Jeep Wrangler cleaned Thursday afternoon at Club Corners Car Wash on Medlock Bridge Road, according to Johns Creek police. He paid the $30.50 charge and left, but he returned minutes later and demanded an employee return his weed, police said.
“Your life or my weed,” Wright said, according to the employee in the police report.
The employee told Wright he didn’t have the marijuana and Wright produced a pink and black handgun, according to the police report. Wright then spoke with the business manager and reviewed surveillance footage. Wright’s actions were also captured on the business cameras, police said.
Wright again left the business but returned, this time demanding the employee’s phone, witnesses told police. Another employee in the car wash called 911, but Wright was gone by the time officers arrived.
The employees were able to track the stolen cellphone to a shopping center in the 6000 block of Medlock Bridge Road, where the Jeep was parked, police said. The vehicle was impounded, but Wright was not located.
On Friday, police obtained arrest warrants for Wright, charging him with armed robbery and aggravated assault. He was not in custody late Friday afternoon.
Wright is currently separated from Toya Wright, who shares a child with rapper Lil Wayne. Wright co-stars on BET’s “Toya: A Family Affair.”
