It ain't all Gucci
Lil Pump was recently arrested for firing a gun inside his home. The rapper popping one off in his own house is a strange enough story as it is — because why was Lil Pump shooting up his own stuff? — but it gets weirder. After Jetski broke down the sequence of events and (tried to) explained himself, everyone was only more confused.
Pump’s manager – who was speaking to law enforcement on Pump’s behalf – said that three men were attempting to jimmy the door of the teen’s home in San Fernando Valley in the middle of the afternoon. The manager said that the burglars fired a single shot through the door in an attempt to get inside. This story quickly fell apart when police investigated the scene though, as forensics indicated that the bullet had been fired from inside the house.
When the police returned with a search warrant, they found a gun in the bushes outside the home. According to TMZ’s recounting, the gun was unloaded. Police found ammo for the weapon inside the home, however. Putting the pieces together, they formed a story that Pump had fired his weapon from the inside, so they arrested the minor for firing a weapon in an inhabited place, even though Pump was home alone when the shot was fired.
While searching the house, police found marijuana. The fact that Pump’s mother was not home and Pump really is lil — he’s only 17 — could lead to charges of negligence for his mom for having an unsecured weapon around the house with a minor.
Pump’s team continues to back his story that three men were trying to enter the home and told TMZ that surveillance footage will prove that the rapper is telling the truth. Pump is currently being held at a juvenile detention facility.
Not His Town
Los Angeles hasn’t been kind to Lil Pump. He, alongside his frequent collaborator SmokePurrp, was recently arrested, a moment that fans happened to capture on video. The charges appeared to be unserious, as Pump was back out and walking around very shortly after.
“The cop pulled me over & I told him ‘B*tch, it’s Lil Pump’ & he let me go,” he joked of the stop on Twitter.
However, the news that he was smoking marijuana at the time of the most recent incident contradicts his recent pledge to kick his drug habits in the new year.
“I don’t pop no xanax,” he said in a recent Instagram video. “I don’t do no drugs, 2018.”
The statements doubled down on ones that he made earlier along with SmokePurrp. Perhaps inspired to leave it behind by the tragic death of fellow upstart Lil Peep, Pump said that he was leaving his one-time drug of choice in the past.
“2018 we going even more crazy love yall 👌🏽💓(btw I don’t take xanz no more f**k Xanax 2018),” he wrote.
While he might have held true to his promise to not do xanax, he’s definitely been spotted smoking weed more than once in recent clips. In a video where he discussed possible record deals with a TMZ photog, he’s clearly smoking a blunt out of the window of his car.
Check out the full story here. What do you think? Is Pump telling the truth? Is possible that he was just really, really high and accidentally put a hole in his front door? Will it matter since he wasn’t supposed to have the gun either way? Sound off in the comments and be sure to SHARE this article.
