White Boy Rick Arrested For Attacking Girlfriend After He Called Her Another Woman’s Name During Sex MDCR/

Richard “White Boy Rick” Wershe, the infamous FBI informant whose life was made into a movie starring Matthew McConaughey, was arrested in Miami this week for allegedly attacking his girlfriend after he called her another woman’s name during sex. When she pulled away and tried to leave the bed, Wershe became violent and lashed out, Local10 reports.

According to the police report, when Wershe’s girlfriend tried to get away from him, he grabbed her by the arm and snatched a diamond necklace and bracelet he’d given her. When she got out of his grip, she threw a shoe at him that missed. However, Wershe than reportedly caught her again and then punched her. A witness saw the punch, which is said to have hit the girlfriend’s chest.

Despite working as an FBI informant from the age of 14, Wershe himself was arrested and charged in 1987 with possession of 9,000 grams of cocaine and $30,000 cash. The 53-year-old has already spent more than 30 years in prison for drug dealing and was only released in 2020, but he ended up back behind those familiar bars (albeit temporarily) in Miami-Dade County over the attack. Officers from the Miami Police Department say that when they searched Wershe, they discovered nearly $11,000 in cash, two gold chains, a gold Rolex, a set of AirPods, and the keys to a Lamborghini.

The victim, who remains unnamed, suffered bruises from the attack. She said she didn’t immediately tell authorities about the attack due to her immigration status. However, she eventually went into the police station, which is when Wershe rushed in looking for his keys.

Richard “White Boy Rick” Wershe was released from the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on a $5,000 bond. He’s facing charges of robbery by sudden snatching and misdemeanor battery. It’s unclear when he’s due back in court to answer to the charges.
