Report: Alleged Rock Hill gang leader arrested after lying to police

The leader of an alleged Rock Hill gang was arrested again Monday, this time for lying to police and driving under suspension while on probation, according to a Rock Hill Police report.

715 FAM founder Antonio Wylie, 21, was accused of speeding in a black Chrysler Sebring with his 10-month-old daughter in the backseat, a police report states.

He gave police a different name and social security number than his own, the report states.

The name Wylie allegedly gave to police belonged to a suspected gang member, police say. Street crimes unit officers were called to identify the driver, and they stated he was Wylie, the report states. Wylie had an active bench warrant for larceny and unpaid traffic tickets, the report states.

Wylie is one of several people arrested in January for alleged gang activity. Police say the 715 FAM feud with the KOB gang led to shootings and a death.

Wylie pleaded guilty to third-degree burglary and criminal conspiracy in May. In the plea deal agreement, prosecutors dismissed the charge against him of using threats or violence to solicit membership into a gang. Wylie was sentenced to 30 months of probation. Wylie maintains the 715 FAM is not a gang nor involved in criminal activity. He says they are a group of musical artists writing and singing lyrics about their experiences.

On Monday, Wylie was arrested and charged with driving under suspension, third offense, and false information to police. His daughter was taken by a female acquaintance. He is held on a $3,000 bond.
