ASAP Bari Hit With Two Felony Drug Charges
In total, he has been charged with seven crimes, reports TMZ on Saturday (March 2). The most serious charges are possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver weed and criminal conspiracy to commit to possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. Various misdemeanors include possession of drug paraphernalia.
As previously reported, Bari was arrested on Nov. 29, 2018. He was pulled over after police observed him driving his Mercedes the wrong way down a street. When police approached the vehicle, they noticed a strong odor of marijuana. During a search, authorities discovered over two dozen tins filled with weed and arrested Bari. He insisted the stash was for personal use and was initially charged with misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance. He was release after posting a $25,000 bond.
The news comes on the heels of him putting another legal case in the rear view. In January, Bari pleaded guilty to a charge he was facing in the United Kingdom. He was accused of sexual assault in July 2017, after a video surfaced that appears to show him demanding sex from a woman before slapping her on the butt. Bari plead guilty to one count of sexual assault on Jan. 3 in the case. He avoided jail time and was ordered to pay a fine and be subject to a restraining order. Bari sued his accuser for defamation last August.
