Former reality TV star Benzino has some serious weight on his shoulders. New reports claim the hip-hop veteran caught a low-key arrest last year and is now facing years behind bars.

According to reports, the drama dates back to January 2017 when Zino allegedly found himself arrested and charged with felony possession of THC oil gummies, felony possession of 6 MDMA pills and misdemeanor possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.

According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, cops executed a search warrant at the producer’s ATL apartment and found the drugs in drawers and on the kitchen counters. He was arrested and posted $12k bail. Benzino’s legal team argued the search was illegal, but a judge ruled cops searched the pad legally. We’re told Benzino’s legal team will learn Wednesday in court when the case is headed to trial … which could be as soon as next month, if he doesn’t cop a plea. If convicted, Benzino could face up to 15 years behind bars. (TMZ)
