VIENNA (AP) — An Austrian legal official says that U.S. rapper Freddie Gibbs has posted bail and been released from custody after being charged with sexual abuse.
He and a body guard have been indicted for allegedly exploiting the dazed state of two women whose drinks were possibly spiked to sexually abuse them after a nightclub appearance by Gibbs.
Gibbs, whose real name is Fredrick Tipton, was recently extradited to Austria from France. He denies the accusations.
Criminal court spokeswoman Christina Salzborn said Thursday that Gibbs posted bail of 50,000 euros (nearly $57,000.) His lawyer, Thomas Kralik, said Gibbs had to surrender his passport and agree not to leave the country.
