Hicks was nabbed after a series of robberies on Wednesday morning. He reportedly used a handgun to force money and property from his victims.

His other problems

Hick's life had been going off course for a while now. In 2014, his brother Tristan was arrested for a Vegas car crash that killed a girl. His mother died after a heart attack a year later. At the time, Hick had tweeted:

My biggest fear as a child became a reality. R.I.P mom. Everything I do now is for you. Love you always and forever.

Throwback of my mom and I #ripmother

He paid most of his brother's legal fee and testified during Tristan's parole hearing.


With a bail set at $550,000, Hicks is still in custody. It has been 3 weeks since his arrest, and he is yet to post a bond or enter a plea.

He faces a possible maximum sentence of more than 60 years in a state prison.
