Rapper Desiigner has been released from jail after drug and gun charges against him were dropped.
He had been arrested on Thursday night, after police stopped the car he was in and found drugs inside. Police had been tipped to the car after another driver had claimed the rapper pulled a gun on them.
A search of the vehicle didn’t produce any guns. However, numerous drugs reportedly including Oxycontin, methadone and steroids were found.
Desiigner freed of gun and drug charges
There were five of them in the car, and all were charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of drugs with intent to sell. The Panda rapper was additionally charged with felony criminal possession of a loaded weapon.
Both charges have however now been dropped, and Desiigner is now being arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court on three misdemeanor counts of menacing and drug possession.
“There’s nothing here. There’s nothing recovered,” his attorney, Adam Konta, said. “There really is nothing here.”
“They tried to keep me in but when you’re doing right they can’t,” the 19-year old rapper said after posting bail.
“It’s dangerous to say that just because there were four black men in a car they had guns and drugs,” the attorney for Desiigner’s friends, Ian Niles said. “Who that was who reported needs to be figured out.”
