Atlanta rapper Offset of Migos, who was recently hospitalized after wrecking his car, was arrested today after police say they found a gun in his SUV, according to a report from TMZ. The rapper was driving just outside of Atlanta when officers pulled him over, citing his tinted windows. While no reason has been given why they felt the need to search the vehicle, a witness told TMZ that the officers discovered a gun in the car, prompting them to arrest Offset, who is currently on probation.
Offset recently welcomed his daughter Kulture Cephus into the world with wife Cardi B, but it looks like he might not get to enjoy his time as a father for very long. In Georgia, convicted felons like Offset can get in serious trouble if caught with firearms; along with additional felony charges, penalties can include heavy fines and up to five years in prison.
