White Boy Rick Arrested, Ex-Gangster Reportedly Punched Woman After Saying Wrong Name During Sex
If you thought that White Boy Rick put his criminal past behind him after being released from prison in July 2020, you were wrong. According to a report from the NY Post, the notorious former Detroit gangster was arrested once again earlier this week. His first trip behind bars was in 1987 as a result of having eight kilos of cocaine and nearly $30,000. This time, the criminal - born Richard Wershe Jr. - is in trouble for allegedly punching his girlfriend during sex.
According to the outlet, the drama began when Rick said another woman's name in the middle of intercourse. His partner, who remains unidentified at this time, was understandably upset and tried to leave the bed. Caught up in the heat of the moment, the ex-con apparently grabbed her hand to snatch a diamond bracelet and necklace previously gifted to her by Wershe. She told police that after pulling away she threw a shoe at her lover, but ultimately missed. He promptly took more aggressive action, running over to allegedly punch the woman in the chest.

An unidentified witness has corroborated Rick's girlfriend's story, though it remains unclear why they were at the scene. Their quarrel actually took place last Saturday (May 6). Because she was concerned about her immigration status, the victim held off on reporting to the police until Tuesday. The next day, Wershe was booked and charged with felony robbery by sudden snatching, as well as a misdemeanour battery charge.
After posing for yet another mugshot, Wershe reportedly made his $5,000 bond on Wednesday, at which time he was released from Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Centre. He's obviously no stranger to the ins and outs of the legal system, eventually becoming Michigan's longest-serving nonviolent juvenile offender after almost three decades in the slammer.
