Richard Duncan, also known as “Oh Sh*t,” from the early seasons of “Black Ink Crew,” was arrested in Georgia in July for DUI and cocaine.

According to the incident report, Richard was pulled over for speeding, the cops smelled alcohol, and they gave him a field sobriety test.

The police said Richard admitted he had been drinking, and when they searched his vehicle, they found a bag of cocaine in the center cup holder.

Richard was charged with DUI, driving with an open container of alcohol, and possession of a controlled substance.

The possession charge is a felony, and the other two charges are misdemeanors.

Richard pled not guilty.

Richard’s drug and alcohol addiction often played out on “Black Ink Crew.”

Richard and “Black Ink Crew” owner Ceaser Emanuel were close friends, and Ceaser tried numerous times on the show to give Richard the help he needed before he reached his breaking point.

Richard eventually left the show and started his own tattoo business, Drip Tattoo Collective, in Atlanta, Georgia.

Richard recently took to his Instagram account and took accountability for his arrest and poor decision-making.

He wrote:

I need to be honest and transparent with my IG family. I’ve been having a hard time.

I was diagnosed as bipolar about 2 years ago and it’s been a hard ass journey navigating the ups and downs of this disease, my sobriety journey, being a new business owner- and just LIFE.

Like most people who suffer from bipolar disorder, there are times u go through manic episodes, depressed episodes and sadly become inconsistent with my meds and self/care. When I’m in a bad place, I don’t always make the best choices and consequently Ive hurt and let down a lot of people I love in the process. That shit eats me up and I hate it.

Last month I did something really stupid during a manic episode and consequently, got a DUI. I do not condone drinking and driving, drug use or acting out- mental illness or not. I did something that was so dumb, pointless and honestly embarrassing.

I can’t promise perfection but the first step is accountability and honesty and I’m working on both. I openly accept the consequences of my actions and I am actively working with my doctors, therapists and group to get back on track.

I’m sorry to everyone i let down. I am looking forward to active recovery, sobriety and a fresh start.

Prayerfully, Richard Duncan gets the help he needs.
