Producer Shawty Redd Posts Bail, Is Out Of Jail Awaiting Trial For Murder


Producer Shawty Redd, who is charged with the New Year's Day murder of 35-year-old Damon Martin, was released from jail on Tuesday (January 12), according to Captain Jason Bolton of the Henry County (Georgia) Police and a representative for the Henry County Superior Court Clerk. The producer (real name: Demetrius Lee Stewart), who has worked with Snoop Dogg and Young Jeezy, had his bail set at $200,000 at a hearing on Tuesday afternoon, the authorities said, and was given clear instructions not to leave Henry County and to wear an ankle bracelet.

Redd has a preliminary hearing tentatively set for February 3. At press time, his attorney, Marcia Fuller, had not responded to MTV News' requests for comment.

Redd was arrested on January 1 after police responded to a call about an early morning shooting at Stewart's home in Hampton, Georgia. According to police, the producer was involved in a physical altercation at his home with Martin, who was described as an "acquaintance." The confrontation turned physical and Stewart shot and killed Martin, according to the report. Bolton told MTV News that Stewart himself called 911 to alert police about the shooting. Bolton also said Stewart was arrested a few hours later at police headquarters after more questioning by detectives.

Stewart appeared in court on Saturday without his attorney, and was granted another hearing to allow him legal representation. He remained in custody until Tuesday afternoon.

"I really couldn't believe it," one of Redd's peers, producer Zaytoven, told MTV News last week. "You hear a lot of rappers going through that type of trouble, but a producer? That's my first time hearing that. I was just shocked.

@RIZZ I dunno about givin the man life. I'd have to know the case but certainly he shouldnt just simply walk if he just straight up shot the dude after an altercation. That s***'s weak as f***.

I'll never understand that concept. No honor at all. It's like you might as well just snipe somebody from afar. It'd be just as "hard". I guess it's just the human extension of Guerrilla Warfare in the 21st Century. Dudes should just start Pipe Bombing each other instead of knuckling up. The Ultimate Gangsta s***! Not only get your enemy but also shrapnel the f*** outta some innocents. Take that.

how is he out on bail let alone only paying $200,000? He is obviously going to be found guilty because the other person didn't have a weapon.
