Gun Charge Against Desiigner Is Dropped
A district attorney in New York City has dropped a felony weapon charge against Desiigner after police failed to find any weapon, TMZ reports. The 19-year-old “Panda” rapper and four others were arrested Thursday following a road rage incident, during which the driver of another car claimed Desiigner pointed a gun at him. A search of Desiigner’s SUV reportedly turned up a number of loose prescription pills, but no gun.
According to TMZ, the D.A. also dropped a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell. Desiigner still faces misdemeanor charges of menacing and criminal possession of a controlled substance. He was scheduled to be arraigned Saturday morning.
