Blac Youngsta Arrested for Felony Weapon Charge
Blac Youngsta is currently behind bars after being arrested in Houston.
A new report from TMZ reveals that the rapper was brought into custody on Wednesday afternoon (Sept. 25) after the GMC Yukon he was riding in was pulled over for running a red light. According to the report, which was published on Thursday afternoon, officers smelled marijuana upon approaching the vehicle so they searched the car and not only found the weed but three pistols as well.
Both Youngsta and his security guard, Marcus Dion Cartwright, were taken into custody. Youngsta was charged with felony possession of armor-piercing ammunition, though it's unclear whether the ammo was loaded in the gun or on its own. Cartwright was charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon. There were other two passengers in the vehicle as well, but they were not charged.
This news follows a recent legal victory for the Memphis rapper. Youngsta, who dropped his three-song EP Cut Up back in May, found the charges held against him in Charlotte, N.C. were dropped. In May of 2017, Youngsta had been charged with five counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied dwelling/moving vehicle and one count of conspiracy to commit discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling in relation to the attempted shooting of Young Dolph's vehicle during CIAA weekend.
As of press time, Youngsta remains behind bars in Harris County Jail. XXL has reached out to Blac Youngsta's team for comment.
