Rapper Pays Fine for Flash Mob Charge without Going to Court
If fans hoped to see Machine Gun Kelly in Strongsville today, they're out of luck.
Colson Baker, known to fans at rapper Machine Gun Kelly, quietly paid a fine for disorderly conduct Wednesday afternoon, avoiding an appearance today in Mayor's Court.
Baker and two members of his group were cited Aug. 20 after jumping on tables at Westfield SouthPark to greet a few hundred fans who had gathered in the food court.
Baker organized the appearance through his Twitter account, urging fans to show up in what he called a flash mob.
Jody Wagner, a clerk at Strongsville Mayor's Court, said fines for all three citations issued in the incident were paid Wednesday.
The fine for the minor misdemeanor, including court costs, was $230, she said.
A representative for Baker came to the court to pay the fine for two of the people cited, including Baker, saying the rapper was on tour. The other person cited apparently paid his own.
Minor misdemeanor citations, like traffic tickets, are waiverable and can be paid without a court appearance.
