Nardo Wick – Police Searching For Men Who Brutally Attacked Fan For Asking For A Picture + Victim’s Family Says Rapper Isn’t Cooperating Despite Issuing An Apology
Authorities are looking for the men responsible for striking a 20-year-old for seemingly no reason.
On Monday (Nov. 27) a young man named George Obregon Jr. was knocked unconscious by reported friends of rapper Nardo Wick, real name Horace Walls III. Reportedly, the incident occurred after the “Me or Sum” artist performed at the Club Skye in Tampa, Florida. Graphic video footage of the brutal attack showed Obregon approaching Nardo Wick around 1:15 a.m. outside of the venue to ask for a picture. Unfortunately, before the rapper even had a chance to answer, two men — reportedly from Nardo Wick’s entourage — punched Obregon multiple times directly in his face, causing his body to go limp and slam onto the ground.
During the incident, Nardo Wick can be heard telling one of the attackers to “chill.” Footage also displayed him quickly stepping in to pull his (alleged) associate off of an unconscious Obregon.
According to reports, the victim is in critical condition, suffering from a severe concussion and brain bleeding. Authorities are now looking for the men who harmed Obregon and have released images of the suspects in hopes that someone from the public can help with locating them.
Nardo Wick has taken to his socials to apologize via a written statement and video. He also said that he had nothing to do with the attack. In part, he wrote,
“I cant control another grown man actions, I ain’t know that was gone happen, and I was mad when it happened. I tried to stop it as u can see in the video, and if somebody got the longer video you can see how mad I was, I love and appreciate all my fans and don’t condone in what happened at all dat sh*t ain’t gangsta or cool in no type of way.”
However, despite his apology, Obregon Sr. — the victim’s dad — recently claimed that the 21-year-old entertainer is not cooperating with authorities to find the men who harmed his son. He shared,
“Wick has not spoken to us. What he should do is collaborate with police because those men were with him, they came out of the place together.”
Obregon Sr. continued,
“We don’t know the suspect’s name because the rapper has not identified them. [Wick] is not talking. He does not want to cooperate.”
The family reportedly has plans to take legal action against Nardo Wick.
