According to the New York Post, the pair was stopped after they drove the wrong way up 9th Avenue and then made a u-turn in order to obtain a parking space. When police approached the vehicle, they reportedly saw Prodigy attempting to conceal something in the SUV’s center console. A search of the vehicle turned up the illegal firearm, and both men were arrested and charged with criminal possession of a weapon. They were both arraigned later on this morning and released, Alchemist on his own recognizance and Prodigy after posting bail in the amount of $7500.
