Did Boogie get shot?

Boogie has said he'll be turning himself in to the police today, and wants to be fully co-operative.

Nothing is confirmed, but a fellow YouTuber said on Twitter that it's linked to an encounter Williams had last year with another YouTuber, when he admitted to firing 'a warning shot.' Rival YouTuber, Frank Hassle was issued the 'warning shot' when he turned up at Boogie's home in Northwest Arkansas in September 2020. The YouTuber, who's famous for harassing people in public, blames Boogie for getting his account terminated.

Both Boogie (Williams) and Hassle were filming and handed over their footage to the police, who confirmed they were investigating exactly what happened last year.
