Detroit police are investigating Young Calicoe after the rapper claimed that he was using his pet dogs and rooster in organized fights. Calicoe mentioned animal fighting in a knock off of MTV Cribs called Midnight TV Hood Reality which drew the attention of the authorities after it went viral.
Calicoe took to Twitter when he learned of the investigation to explain that he was only joking about pitting his animals against one another. “If u find a video of me ‘FIGHTING DOGS’ PLEEEEZE LET ME KNOW,” wrote Calicoe.
During the video, which was posted to LiveLeak.com, the rapper shows of his dogs and a rooster saying, “Anybody wanna fight some dogs? Hope we don’t get indicted for that, that Michael Vick type shit.”
Detroit police only became aware of the video on Monday and it looks like they are taking Calicoe’s boasts seriously. “We just received that today so we are looking into it,” said Detroit Police Officer Dan Donakowski.
