Marcus Ramone Cooper Sr known professionally as Pleasure P of the singing group Pretty Ricky, was arrested in Miami Gardens after a run-in with a fast food worker early Thursday.
Pleasure P, 35, was arrested following a disturbance at the Checkers at 18100 Northwest 2nd Avenue, an arrest report said.
According to the police report, the Checkers employee said Pleasure P had been yelling at her through the intercom system for several minutes before he pulled up to the window and “continued to yell louder and become more disrespectful.”
The employee said Pleasure P gave her $60 for his food, then pushed her in the chest with the food, the report said.
When police officers arrived, Pleasure P said he had been involved in a verbal altercation with the worker and said he threw the food but not at her, the report said.
“While the defendant was speaking to me his person was emitting a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage. I continued my investigation and saw food all over the floor near the drive through window and several employees who corroborated the testimony of the victim,” an officer wrote in the report.
Pleasure P was arrested and booked into jail in Miami-Dade. He was later released.
Pleasure P tells a different story via a post on instagram:
“moving forward we are definitely gonna look into revealing the truth in this situation. This will not go the way they think this is gonna go. I was wrongfully arrested, instead of checkers having better customer service and correcting my order. food was Thrown at me and the staff was very disrespectful. I asked for a refund and she refused to refund me. Like anybody i became upset but not to the point where i got physical with anyone. I think me being in my position, i should have just let her keep the 60 dollars even tho my order wasn’t correct. But hey you live and you learn. Action will be taken on this employee, the officer who wrongfully arrested me will be investigated and my lawyers will be in contact with @checkersrallys Get your tickets to the millennium tour and go get that new pretty ricky single body! Have a blessed day.”
