Desiigner Arrested on Drug, Weapon and Menacing Charges


Rapper Desiigner has been arrested after a road rage situation turned into much more.

The 19-year-old rapper, born Sidney Royel Selby III, was reportedly riding around in an SUV with 4 others, when a screaming match began between them and some people in another vehicle. According to TMZ, the police were called to the scene with claims that Desiigner pointed a gun at the other car’s driver.

When the “Panda” performer’s SUV was located and searched, cops allegedly found “a large quantity of loose pills in the center console. Our law enforcement sources say they found Oxycontin and other drugs.”

Desiigner was reportedly charged with felony criminal possession of a loaded weapon and menacing, and he and his crew were charged with “criminal possession of a controlled substance “and criminal possession of drugs with intent to sell, which are felonies.”

All 5 are still in custody at the time of this article’s publication.
