Starlito Shooting Victim James Fletcher ARRESTED for Filing False Report

08/24 7AM UPDATE: There is an update to this story here: UPDATE: Starlito Shooting Victim James Fletcher Lied About Incident, Fletcher Was Initial Instigator. ARRESTED for False Report, Disorderly Conduct.

On Wednesday afternoon, James Fletcher, the victim in the shooting for which rapper ‘Starlito’ (Jermain Shute) is charged, was arrested on two misdemeanor counts: Filing a False Report, & Disorderly Conduct. Exact details are not yet available, however in the CJIS system, both charges are linked to the open case of the shooting from 08/01/17. Fletcher was released just before 7PM on a $6,500 bond via Brooke’s Bail Bonding to his Mitchell Rd address in East Nashville. In what seems to be a coincidence, Starlito is set to appear in court tomorrow, 08/24/17, to answer to a harassment charge from a July 12th incident with Robert Higgins. His court date for the shooting case is 09/08/17.

The Charge now confirms the offense date of the false report was 08/01, the date of the shooting, at which time he made a statement to the police that he was shot by ‘Starlito’

On 08/01/2017 at 2026 hours, James Fletcher was shot at least once inside 1008 Woodland Street, Nashville, TN 37207 (Batter’d & Fried). During the initial contact with Fletcher, he reported to officers on scene that the shooting suspect was a local rapper by the name of “Starlito” (known to be Jermaine Shute). Via a photographic lineup, a witness at the location identified Shute as the suspect with absolute certainty. Surveillance footage collected from the business as well corroborates the account that Shute is the suspect. Shute does not have a valid hand-gun carry permit.

Although the cases are ‘linked’ in the CJIS system to the Starlito shooting event, what the details of the false report are have not yet been made available. This story will be updated with the details as they become available.
