However, it seems his ride or die girlfriend Kimberly Rousseau got caught up in his mess, as well. According to the New York Daily News, “a guard allegedly saw Kimberly Rousseau, 18, pull a black latex glove balloon wrapped in black electrical tape out of her bra and hand it to him.” According to reports, the guard apparently opened the balloon and found a “sharp metal object.” Both Bobby and his girl were charged with promoting prison contraband.
