The District Attorney overseeing the Desiigner’s case has dropped the gun charge against him stemming from an incident that took place on Thursday night, TMZ reports.
Thursday night, Desiigner was reportedly driving around New York City in an SUV with four other unnamed individuals when a fight broke out with the driver of another vehicle. According to that individual, Desiigner pointed a gun at him during the heated exchange. The SUV ultimately sped off and was eventually located by police after the other driver relayed the vehicle’s license plate information. When they searched the vehicle, they ended up discovering a large quantity of pills, allegedly Oxycontin, methadone, and steroids.
The police reportedly searched the SUV that Desiigner was riding in but were unable to find a loaded firearm of any kind. The authorities initially added the felony possession of a loaded gun charge to the list of his offenses based on the eyewitness testimony of the driver from another vehicle. Additionally, the strike for felony possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell was also dropped. The D.A. concluded that there wasn’t enough evidence to make those particular charges stick.
The rapper was arraigned this morning in a New York courtroom for felony possession of a controlled substance and menacing and released.
