More details have surfaced about the recent arrest of HoneyKomb Brazy. The rapper was reportedly being monitored by authorities through social media while he traveled, which ultimately led to him being arrested, an FBI agent recently testified.

FBI Agent Testifies About HoneyKomb Brazy’s Arrest

On Tuesday (Jan. 9), a federal preliminary hearing was held to address Alabama rapper HoneyKomb Brazy’s arrest for drug and gun possession, reports Fox 10 News. During the hearing, Special Agent Evan Fisher testified about the arrest. The agent said he was with Mobile County sheriff’s deputies on Dec. 18, 2023, when they pulled the rapper and his two associates over on W.K. Wilson Bridge on Interstate 65 in Alabama.

Fisher reportedly testified the authorities used probable cause to stop the rapper’s Cadillac Escalade because he had tinted windows, was following a vehicle too closely and remained in the passing lane for too long.

Under cross-examination, Fisher admitted that he and law enforcement officers knew the rapper, born Nashon Jones, “was out and about” when asked if they were targeting the rapper. Fisher also reportedly acknowledged that they had been monitoring Brazy’s social media posts and knew he was going from Montgomery, Ala. to Mobile, Ala. However, Fisher did not expand on why Brazy was a person of interest other than saying, “He’s a subject of multiple investigations for years.”
