Chicago rapper Vic Mensa got himself in hot water with Beverly Hills police last week and was arrested for carrying a gun following a routine traffic stop.
TMZ reports that Vic was in California last week and happened to run a stop sign while having tinted windows. A local police cruiser spotted the incident and decided to pull Mensa over, which prompted him to quickly admit that he had a weapon in the car. Vic has a concealed weapon license, but it isn’t valid in The Golden State so authorities booked him.
Mensa was released a day later on $35,000 bail and charged with one felony count of carrying a concealed weapon.
Hopefully he and his legal team can get this matter sorted out sooner than later.
