The man being accused of Takeoff's murder is proclaiming his innocence. According to Billboard, 33-year-old Patrick Xavier Clark appeared in court yesterday (December 5th) and prosecutors and his defense attorneys agreed to hold a bond reduction hearing on December 14th.
Letitia Quinones, one of Clark's attorneys, told reporters after the hearing that Clark is feeling “nervous and he’s concerned” because “he’s being charged with something that he believes he’s innocent of, so how would anyone do in that type of circumstance?”
Meanwhile, court records indicate that Clark was arrested as he was preparing to leave the country for Mexico after getting an expedited passport and that he had a “large amount” of cash. Quinones said that Clark had been planning to go to Mexico on a vacation but had canceled his trip before his arrest. She added, “He wasn’t trying to go anywhere.”
Takeoff was shot and killed at a bowling alley in Houston on November 1st. He was 28.
