ATLANTA - It was supposed to be a meeting between a performing artist and a promoter, but for rapper William Reddick, also known as Slim 4187, the rendezvous ended badly.
Police officers were waiting at the coffee shop in Little Five Points and guided the suspect outside to a waiting police cruiser.
What did Reddick do? Police accuse him of creating a fake license and credit card, using someone else's identity to rent a high-end SUV. That vehicle is gone and the credit card came back as fraudulent.
Police charged Reddick with theft by deception and took him to jail.
A private security staffer who works for the rental car company said Reddick supplied a phone number that was used to find the rapper's Instagram page.
Slim 4187 was lured to the meeting at the coffee shop with a promise that he would get a down payment on his performance fee.
