22 Crips gang associates including Wright Jnr have been arrested for allegedly running a heroin, cocaine, meth and marijuana pipeline. Wright is currently on bail after the arrest was made.
The court decided that as part of Wright Jnr’s bail restrictions, he’ll also be banned from leaving his home except for “court appearances and medical appointments.” It remains a mystery as to what he’s suffering from although it’s believed that he has been having MRI scans in the hospital.
The hit documentary “Battle for Compton” featured Wright as it also looked at the life and deaths of rappers Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac. He also worked in the gang unit for the Compton Police Department before he retired from the LA County Sheriff’s Department. He was also a cop before leaving to work for Suge Knight as the top security chief at Death Row Records.
For a very long time, he has been linked to claims that he was involved in the shooting of Tupac.
According to Rap mogul Knight, Wright killed Tupac while insisting HE was the real target of the infamous shooting in 1996.
The producers of the viral documentary “Battle for Compton,” were not surprised by the news of his earlier arrest. RJ Bond, a renowned US documentary maker claims the document names the killers and clears Knight of any involvement in the drive-by shooting.
It’s alleged that the letter was written by one of the gunmen who opened fire on Tupac’s car in Las Vegas in 1996. A gang member called ‘Danny’ is said to have later handed it to a TV journalist. During the night of Tupac’s death, the former rap mogul was with Tupac in the Cadillac. It also tells of a background of a stolen rap song, a brutal gang beating and finally the bloody revenge hit.
The finger is pointed at Wright Jnr in the ‘confession letter’ in which he told the shooters where Tupac would be on night at the attack. RJ Bond claims: “The story behind the confession letter is very simple. It was given to a Fox reporter who was very keen on the story.
“A big TV interview was set up but he was a no show and the letter was then given to Russell Poole (a former LAPD cop) and it was put in a file and not looked at for a long time.
“When I saw it, the name of Reginald Wright Jnr just leaps out of the page. It reads he gave Tupac’s location. My jaw just hit the floor when I read that.”
For a very long time, Wright Jr has long denied he had anything to do with the shooting of Tupac. Back in 2015, he responded to the claims by pointing out that several people that had linked him to Tupac’s murder had died in the past decade.
