Earlier today, the New York Daily News reported that Bobby Shmurda has filed a suit in Brooklyn Federal Court against the NYPD for false arrest following his June 2014 arrest for weapons possession and drug paraphenalia.

Within that report, the Daily News claimed that Shmurda is free on $2 million bail, but Shmurda's attorney, Alex Spiro confirmed via email to The FADER that the 21-year-old rapper is still being held in protective custody for the foreseeable future.

According to VIBE, Shmurda is due to go to trial on May 11 where he'll answer to charges of "conspiracy, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon — and criminally using drug paraphernalia."
