Rapper who shot a cop is ordered to pay $10 million


Tab Turk Virgil

A Shelby County Sheriff's deputy shot during a 2004 drug raid has won a $10 million judgment. Wednesday, a judge ordered rapper Tab "Turk" Virgil to pay deputy Chris Harris the money.

Harris was shot four times inside an apartment complex in Hickory Hill. Since then he's undergone three surgeries and could need even more.

Harris is back on the force and hopes his case makes a statement.

"We want to send a strong message. If you're going to shoot the police, shoot at us, not only will we prosecute you, we will also come after you civilly," said Deputy Harris.

Virgil declined our request to speak with him about the multi-million dollar judgement. We are told Virgil, or Turk as he's called, is still putting out albums from behind bars...rapping his lyrics over the phone.
