“Panda” rapper Desiigner was arrested on Thursday night in New York for felony drug and weapons charges; but it’s what lead to the rapper being behind bars that really takes the cake.
TMZ first broke the news; the rapper was in a white Range Rover with a group of his friends when he got involved in a road rage incident. The driver of the other car called 911 and claimed someone in the SUV pointed a gun at them.
The SUV took off, but fortunately, the second party took down the license plate number.
Officials eventually located the car, only to find a large amount of Oxycontin and other drugs in the center console. According to TMZ, Desiigner and four other men were taken into custody and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of drugs with intent to sell.
Sidney Royel Selby III, the rapper’s legal name, was also hit with felony criminal possession of a loaded weapon for brandishing a gun.
According to reports, the rapper has not posted bail and is expected in court later this morning.
