FLORENCE, S.C. (WBTW) — Rapper “Kill Bill” from the reality TV show “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” was arrested Wednesday morning along with a passenger in Florence County.
Willie Albert Johnson, 28, and Tyki Nathaniel Collins,19, both of Fort Lauderdale, Florida were arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute schedule two controlled substances, possession with intent to distribute schedule three controlled substances, receiving stolen goods and possession of burglary tools.
Deputies said they initiated a traffic stop on a black Mazda for speeding. They smelt a marijuana odor which led to a search of the vehicle. The search found more than 10 suboxone strips in the front passenger area for which deputies said neither the driver nor the passenger had a prescription for.
Deputies also said they found more than 10 oxycodone tablets, which neither Johnson or Collins had a prescription for, credit cards, IDs, and clothing which allegedly did not belong to either of them.
Johnson was arrested earlier this year in Lexington, Kentucky, and charged with trafficking stolen identities, according to LEX18 TV. He is also known for his public relationship with his ex-fiancé Sukihana, who is a main cast member on the show and also a rapper.
Johnson and Collins are being held at the Florence County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
Johnson is the second musician arrested recently in Florence County. Ewart Everton Brown, 55, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, known as “Mad Cobra” was arrested in July and charged with trafficking cocaine and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
