Channel 2′s Tom Jones talked to residents who said New was accused of routinely relieving himself from a high-rise unit. Neighbors said it was so bad, they thought about using an umbrella when they walked along the sidewalk.
Jones talked to New as he was being walked to a patrol car, and he denied the allegations against him.
“I’m famous! I’m on TV, bruh,” New said. “I didn’t do this, man. No. I’m innocent. I promise I didn’t do this.”
New also goes by the name Shawty Dred and has nearly a million followers on Instagram.
