Florida rapper Trick Daddy is making headlines for the wrong reasons. The hip-hop entertainer has reportedly landed in handcuffs this weekend on a cocaine possession charge.
Big Facts: According to reports, the bust went down Saturday morning in South Beach.
According to the police report, a Miami-Dade officer responded to a report of a driver hitting signs and running red lights in a dark colored Range Rover in the area of Southwest 128th Avenue and 42nd Street in Miami around 3:20 a.m. When the officer approached the driver’s side, he saw that the driver “appeared to be asleep behind the wheel.” (Miami Herald)
High-Key Details: Trick ultimately failed a sobriety test and landed in a police station.
The report said Young had slurred speech, bloodshot, watery and glassy eyes, and that the officer smelled alcohol on his breath. Police said Young failed a field sobriety test and was taken to a station, where police found cocaine in his belongings. Young was already wanted on a warrant for driving under the influence. (WPTV)
Wait, There’s More: A few years ago, Daddy also made headlines for a similar arrest.
This isn’t the first time he was arrested for cocaine, he was also arrested in April 2014 when police went to his Florida home and found a gram of cocaine in his nightstand and a 9mm gun under his pillow. For that case, he was booked into jail and later bonded out — after being charged with possession of cocaine, possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon, and driving with a suspended license.
Before You Go: Next month, Daddy and a slew of Miami legends are slated to perform at a Super Bowl weekend concert.
