An arrest has reportedly been made following the Slowbucks Summer Jam chain-snatching incident (Jun. 1). Mikey Fingers, a member of 50 Cent’s entourage, is believed to have been taken into police custody.
This follows a press conference that was held by the lifestyle brand (Jun. 5) duo in which their lawyer John P. Bostany, announced that 50, as well as others, would be investigated for the snatching of Slow’s (one-half of the team) chain during the rapper’s Summer Jam set.
And now Slowbucks is defending itself against being called snitches, posting statuses to their social media in defense of protecting their brand:

Mike Lighty, who has been quoted as calling Slowbucks snitches, has also taken to Instagram to deny any involvement in the situation:
Attention all Media Blog Sites. Damn I guess blogs sites are talking for me nowadays or someone wants me to pick sides. Thanks for the fake publicity but no thanks! I don't got time too hate on @slowbucks ever. I'm out here trying to make money not more enemies! That situation has nothing to do w me. Not sure who put this message out to the media but seems like a chess move to me but I don't play chess. FYI - I love the Bronx and my street Fam but I don't even know Mike Fingers and I'm not on 50 Cents payroll nor does he fuck with me at all anymore because I'm not a yes man. so please please stop putting me in the mix in hopes to create some exciting media. I'm retired from being a yes man and that's why I'm here in NY too restart my career cause a lot of people I helped get rich forgot. Salute to everyone out there grinding, keep pushing!!#VIOLATOR #HUSTLERSUNION #100
Authorities have yet to officially confirm an arrest.
