DJ Pat [ Patrick Clark] 33, was arrested on Thursday without resistance at his Houston home. He is charged with murder and is being held on $2 million bail.
Before his arrest, Prosecutors say Clark planned to flee to Mexico and he is considered a flight risk.
According to Fox 5 Atlanta, Clark applied for “an expedited passport by submitting a travel itinerary for an upcoming flight to Mexico.”
When he was taken into custody, Clark had the passport and a large amount of cash in his possession.
He is scheduled to attend his next hearing in Houston on Monday, Dec. 5, KPRC2 News reports
Houston Police Chief Troy Finner on Friday revealed that ballistics proved the bullets that struck Takeoff (right) were cycled through Clark’s gun which was recovered by police at the time of his arrest.
Police reviewed multiple videos that showed Clark firing a weapon while holding a wine bottle in his other hand. He left the wine bottle at the scene and fled in a car.
Police matched the fingerprints on the wine bottle and the car’s license plate to Clark.
Police also arrested another person of interest 22-year-old Cameron Joshua last month and charged him with being a felon in possession of a weapon when Takeoff was shot. He is the so-called “yellow hoodie” man seen in videos fleeing inside the bowling alley when the shootout occurred.
Police say ballistics prove Joshua did not fire his weapon that night. Chief Finner said two people fired weapons at the scene. The other shooter is believed to be Quavo’s half-brother Migo Bands, who is seen firing a handgun in cell phone videos.
Clark is a club promoter who routinely promoted events at The Flame HTX strip club to his nearly 24,000 social media followers.
Rapper Jmali told The Daily Beast on Friday that he and many others were “shocked” by Clark’s arrest.
“Pat was similar to Takeoff in that he was quiet and just went about his business,” Jmali said. “That’s why this is so surprising to everyone here.”
Finner said Takeoff, whose real name is Kirshnik Khari Ball, was “an innocent bystander” who did not participate in the high stakes dice game hosted by J. Prince Jr. at the bowling alley.
“We lost a good man,” Finner said. “Hundreds of people I talked to spoke to what a great individual he was.”
