According to News Channel 5 reports, 36 year old James Fletcher walked into a Battr’d and Fried restaurant and punched one of Starlito’s associates in the face. A fight ensued out of the range of surveillance and Fletcher ended up shot in the leg. Police can’t say whether Starlito or his friend pulled the trigger. Fletcher’s injuries were not substantial, and he refuses to cooperate with police.
The rapper, recently off tour promoting the Step Brothers 3 mixtape with Don Trip has had quite the week, as a few days ago reports emerged of him fighting Young Buck at a local basketball game.
