HipHollywood can confirm that rapper Tory Lanez has been arrested on felony gun charges.
Lanez, who is expected to perform on Saturday during the Coachella Valley Music Festival, was taken into custody on Wednesday in Florida after police found a hand gun and weed in his car.
The Miramar Police Department tells HipHollywood that the Canadian rapper was pulled over for a routine traffic stop when they discovered Lanez had an invalid license.
We are told that officers then searched the car after noticing a “strong odor of marijuana. Upon further investigation, officials found “less than 20 grams” of weed in the glove box. We are told officers also found a “concealed loaded unholstered firearm” in the center console.
Daystar Peterson, the rapper’s legal name, was taken to the Broward County Main Jail, where he was charged with carrying a concealed weapon-firearm, possession of cannabis, failure to register vehicle, operating a motor vehicle with invalid license and failure to show proof of insurance.
Lanez later posted $1,000 bond.
HipHollywood reached out to the artist’s rep, but so far, no word back.
