It’s been reported rapper Playboi Carti was arrested on Thursday during a traffic stop in Clayton County, Georgia. They say police noticed the tag on the rapper’s Lamborghini was expired, so they pulled him over. Playboi was with a companion, but cops quickly figured out they had an assortment of downers in their possession… Xanax, oxycodone, codeine and 12 bags of marijuana.
They also found three guns in the Lambo, but there’s no description of what kind of firearms they were. Carti and his acquaintance Jaylan Tucker, a 21-year-old man from California, were both arrested on drug and firearms charges. However, Playboi Carti was let out on bond soon after his arrest even though the Clayton County jail is known for being notoriously slow to process out of.
The AJC also reported an update saying Playboi Carti was only charged with marijuana possession, improperly passing an emergency vehicle, and not displaying an updated decal on his license plate. If true, Playboi just avoided what could have been serious legal trouble. It’s worth noting Tucker is still locked up, while the “Magnolia” rhymer is home with his family.
You may know Playboi Carti is boyfriend to rapper Iggy Azalea, but we haven’t yet heard what she has to say about his arrest. The two of them recently made news after reportedly being robbed of $350,000 in jewels from the home they share in Atlanta.
We’ll keep you posted if there are any new developments – until the next time it drips…
