Screen Shot 2015-06-27 at 8.36.17 PMSurveillance video from a Johns Creek car wash shows Harold Huntley trying to get away from an attacker Thursday.

Moments earlier police say Wright came to the Club Corners Carwash.

“He was getting a car wash, and when I drove his car into the tunnel, I smelled marijuana,” Huntley said.

Screen Shot 2015-06-27 at 8.37.48 PMHuntley says Wright wrongly accused him of stealing marijuana out of the SUV.

“He comes back and is like, ‘You stole my weed, you stole my weed.’ I was like, ‘Nah, man,’ and then he pulled a gun out on me and was like, ‘It’s gonna be your life or it’s gonna be my weed,’” Huntley said.

As Huntley called the cops video shows Wright snatch his phone and run off.

“He was like, ‘Man just give me the phone, give me the phone. What’s it gonna be? Your life or your phone? Is it really that important?’” Huntley said.

Felony arrest warrants have been obtained for armed robbery and aggravated assault for Wright, who is married to the one-time love interest of rapper Lil Wayne.

“You’re on TV. You got money. Why throw all that away?” Huntley asked.

Screen Shot 2015-06-27 at 8.35.59 PMPolice say they found the Jeep, the handgun and the stolen phone a few miles from the car wash.

They think someone picked Wright up and whisked him away.

They are asking him to turn himself in to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department.
