Vic Mensa ran a stop light and police say his car had illegal tinted windows when they pulled him over in Beverly Hills last week, reports say. He was arrested when he confessed to police officers that he was carrying a gun in his car.
The Chicago native presented a concealed carry permit that, according to TMZ, is only valid in another state. He was booked and spent the night behind bars. The “16 Shots” rapper was charged with a felony count of carrying a concealed weapon. After one night in jail, he was released on $35,000 bail.
Last year, Beverly Hills police accused Mensa of robbing a department store after he spent $4,000 there. Mensa, in turn, accused the officers of racial profiling. He shared his story on Snapchat afterwards.
