Waka Flocka Flame has been arrested in Georgia after customs officials found a loaded gun in his luggage as he attempted to board a plane.
The rapper, real name Juaquin Malphurs, was detained at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Friday morning (10 Oct) and charged with carrying a weapon in a prohibited place.
Reports suggest he didn’t have a permit for the gun. He is currently in custody at Clayton County jail. The rapper’s love of guns landed him in trouble earlier this year – he is reportedly facing an investigation by probation officials after he was featured in an Instagram photo brandishing a firearm.
The rapper whose probation from a previous conviction bans him from being in possession of weapons poses alongside his wife Tammy Rivera in the shot, in which he can be seen pointing a gun at the camera.
The snap, which Rivera uploaded on September 3rd, went viral and caught the attention of authorities, who contact Waka Flocka Flame’s attorney over the careless picture.
