A superyacht captain was allegedly robbed at gunpoint over a charter fee dispute whilst a famous musician was on board…
Miami Police are investigating reports of an armed robbery on a yacht in the Miami River following a heated dispute over the charter fee on Sunday (23 July) night.
The City of Miami Police Department issued a report stating that the vessel had between 13 and 17 people on board at the time. This included Quavious Marshall, better known as Quavo, the frontman for the hip-hop group,Migos.
Allegedly, the yacht was chartered and paid for, but when it came time to bring the yacht back to the dock, guests held the captain of the boat at gunpoint and demanded a refund.
However, the police report indicates that although two firearms were recovered from the yacht, no threats were made involving the weapons. No arrests have been made thus far due to conflicting statements.
The Miami Beach Police Department is continuing to investigate the incident.
