Desiigner was arrested last night in New York following a road rage incident that later led to a felony drug and weapons charges.

Police told TMZ that people in an SUV and the driver of another vehicle started screaming at each other, before the driver in the second car called 911 claiming that Desiigner had pulled a gun on him. The SUV left but the driver of the car noted the license plate.

Officers later found the SUV and searched it, finding lots of “loose pills” in the centre console, including the opiate Oxycontin amongst other drugs.

Desiigner and the four other people in the SUV were all arrested and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, as well as being charged with criminal possession of drugs with intent to sell.

The rapper was also charged with felony criminal possession of a loaded weapon and ‘menacing’, for allegedly pointing a gun at the other driver.
