RAPPER’S FRIEND SUING HOTEL OVER SECURITY
A friend of popular rapper Famous Dex is suing Hyatt Place Denver Airport claiming that poor security allowed someone from an unruly crowd of fans to shoot him in the knee outside the performer’s room, a lawsuit says.
Rapper Dexter Gordon’s 26-year-old friend, N’Sangue Augustine, sued Hyatt Place, 7700 E. Arapahoe Road, on Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Denver. Augustine is seeking unspecified damages and attorneys fees against Hyatt.
A phone message left at Hyatt media headquarters in Chicago was not returned Wednesday.
Augustine was traveling with Gordon, a Chicago rapper, on Aug. 16, 2016, when they went to the hotel after a performance.
A crowd of fans entered the hotel and asked staff members which room Famous Dex was in and then gathered outside the rapper’s room, the lawsuit says. Hotel staff members made no effort to protect the two men or call police, the lawsuit says.
When Augustine asked the crowd to leave so he and Gordon could get some rest, one of the fans pulled out a gun and shot him in the knee, the lawsuit says.
