22-year-old Rasheem Queen (Raa Da Jeweler) was jailed early Saturday morning after officers observed him filling balloons with laughing gas in the area of the Walk of Fame Park just outside the Phish concert. Police watched as Mr. Queen filled balloons from metal containers labeled Nitrous Oxide and exchanged them for money. Once the balloons were handed over to the consumer, they immediately inhaled the contents inside. As officers attempted to place Mr. Queen into handcuffs, he began to run toward 6th Avenue. He was eventually detained and searched. Officers recovered $520 cash, a large quantity of unfilled balloons, and two metal cylinders full of Nitrous Oxide.
Raasheem Queen of 230th Street in Queensbury, NY, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on October 7th, charged with resisting arrest, toxic vapors, and delivery or manufacturing drug paraphernalia. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $5,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
