Just days after making headlines for concert that ended in violence, Webbie was arrested for drug and tampering with evidence charges.
According to the Associated Press, the Baton Rouge. LA rapper was picked up near Nashville on Monday (April 4) after the Tennessee Highway Patrol allegedly found the Trill Entertainment MC throwing marijuana out of the window of his rental car.
Authorities claim to have found about two ounces of the drug in Webbie’s possession, as well as about $13,000 in cash before taking him into custody. Meanwhile, the vehicle’s driver was hit with driving with a suspended license charge and another passenger faces a gun charge.
As of press time Webbie has yet to release a statement about the arrest. —Ralph Bristout
