Gunplay: Off the Hook in Armed Robbery Case

by at . Comments

Rapper Gunplay is off the hook for robbing his accountant at gunpoint - despite video showing the whole damn thing - after the victim refused to cooperate.

Makes you think.

The Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office told TMZ earlier: "Video alone is not enough to convict an individual of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt."

"Although the armed robbery is captured on [video], the victim, Turron Woodside, is uncooperative of the prosecution of this defendant Richard Morales [Gunplay]."

Officials needed Woodside to authenticate the surveillance video to use it as evidence against Gunplay, who was accused of pulling a gun on him.

He's accused of stealing a cell phone and gold chain during the incident last fall; Gunplay was charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault.

The State Attorney's Office says the judge subpoenaed Woodside to appear in the case but prosecutors were unable to find him in order to serve him.

Officials say Woodside's family and co-workers have told the court "he's out of town and/or coping with a family death" along with other excuses.

The judge made it clear ... without Woodside's testimony, prosecutors couldn't make their case, and they were forced to drop charges against Gunplay.

Now that it's over in any case, Gunplay says he's gonna roll a fat ass J ... oh, and spend time with his "loved ones." He tells the celeb gossip site:

"Today I am grateful and blessed that the case was dismissed," he says.

"I plan on picking up where I left off with my music and making hits with my upcoming debut album ... The first thing I am going to do today is smoke a joint."

"Relax, play video games, and just be with my loved ones."

God speed, Gunplay. God speed.
