Desiigner Arrested in NYC, Facing Gun & Drug Charges

Desiigner was arrested on Thursday night (September 9) and he is facing felony drug and weapons charges.

The 19-year-old “Panda” rapper was riding in an SUV when the passengers of the car began yelling at the driver of another car. Desiigner allegedly pointed a gun at the driver of the other car.

The SUV drove away, but the other driver wrote down the license plate number and the cops eventually found the car. After it was searched, Oxycontin and other drugs were found. All five people in the car were arrested and charged with “criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of drugs with intent to sell,” according to TMZ.

Because Desiigner allegedly pointed a gun at the other driver, he was also “charged with felony criminal possession of a loaded weapon and menacing.”
