Blueface, the renowned rapper known for his hit song "Thotiana," has reached a plea agreement in the Las Vegas shooting case, sparing him from a jail sentence. The artist has pled guilty to two charges related to the incident that transpired in 2022 and now awaits a probationary ruling.

Legal representatives of Blueface, Caitlyn McASmis and Kristina Wildeveld, informed 8NewsNow that their client voluntarily waived his right to a preliminary hearing and chose to plead guilty to charges of battery and discharging a firearm at or into an occupied structure. Judge Kathleen Delaney duly acknowledged and accepted the plea on Monday, July 3.

In a significant development, Judge Delaney has also granted Blueface's release from house arrest, which had been imposed following his arrest in June. The sentencing is scheduled to take place on October 2, providing an opportunity for the court to determine an appropriate course of action.

The incident in question unfolded on October 8, 2022, at the Euphoric Gentlemen's Club in Las Vegas. Allegedly, an altercation ensued after an individual made a jest about Blueface conversing with "some females in a cheap vehicle." Reportedly, the rapper took offense, prompting members of his entourage to engage in physical altercations with the man.

Subsequently, the man returned to the club in his truck and confronted the group, inquiring, "Who hit me?!" However, it appears that Blueface and his associates may have misinterpreted the situation, believing the man posed a threat with a firearm. Consequently, the rapper purportedly fired shots at the fleeing truck. Law enforcement officials confirmed the presence of bullet marks on the vehicle, while the truck's owner sustained what appeared to be a minor gunshot graze wound on his left hand.

Initially, Blueface vehemently maintained his innocence. Meanwhile, an individual purporting to be the club owner attributed the establishment's permanent closure to the rapper's involvement, alleging that Blueface's "gang-related activities" were the cause.

Blueface was subsequently taken into custody and booked at the Clark County Detention Center on charges of attempted murder. Following his appearance in court on November 16, he was subsequently released from police custody upon posting a bail of $50,000.
