He was then spotted around 3 pm at the Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport, just a few hours after the raids started. 

 

 

The inquiry was being directed by Homeland Security Investigations agents in New York, where he was accused by a former girlfriend R&B singer Cassie Ventura in a lawsuit filed in federal court in November of engaging in sex trafficking.
