Lil Flip, Gun Charge Arrest: Rapper Says He’s Innocent
When police pulled him over in Shreveport, La. for speeding and allegedly found marijuana and a Bushmaster AR-15 rifle in his car, he was arrested for speeding, possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm in the presence of a controlled dangerous substance.
But in a interview with TMZ, he says he was not carrying drugs during the incident and he has a license for his gun -- even sharing his license with the site. He alleges he only had wine-flavored cigars and clove cigarettes on him.
"[I'm] not one of those rappers who would carry drugs on me," he told TMZ. "I know better ... I know they don't mess around in Louisiana and I wouldn't do anything to make me go to the big house. Especially on Christmas night."
He plans on pleading not guilty.
