Lil Flip Arrested: Houston Rapper Busted With Weed & Assault Rifle
Houston rapper Lil Flip has been out of the public eye for several years, but he recently found himself behind bars when a speeding ticket resulted in drug and weapons charges.
The rapper, born Wesley Eric Weston, 31, was driving 86 mph in a 75mph zone in Shreveport, La., when local police pulled him over and searched his 2010 Dodge Challenger, turning up marijuana and an illegally owned Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle.
Flip was subsequently arrested for speeding, third-offense possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm in the presence of a controlled dangerous substance.
Flip's bond was set at $35,000. He has since been released, and has posted some very upset messages via Instagram.
"I have a gun license.. and black n mild guts ain't ganja," he wrote, accompanying a photo of him flipping off the camera. "If my gun was a problem why is it still in my trunk."
