Jadakiss Arrested on Gun Charge
Interscope recording artist Jadakiss was arrested early Saturday morning in Yonkers, NY and charged with criminal possession of a weapon. According to the Associated Press, police stopped the vehicle at 4:25 a.m. and discovered a loaded handgun. The rapper, whose real name is Jason Phillips, was one of four passengers in the vehicle, all of whom were charged. This marks the second weapons-related arrest for the rapper in recent years. In 2004 he was arrested in Fayettville, North Carolina on weapons and marijuana possession charges under similar circumstances. He later reached a plea agreement in that case and paid a small fine.
