Earlier this week, the renowned rapper Boosie Badazz found himself entangled in a legal ordeal as he made an appearance in court regarding a recent gun case that had initially been dismissed. Unfortunately, his departure from the hearing took an unexpected turn when federal agents, patiently waiting outside, swiftly moved in to apprehend him.
Initially shrouded in mystery, the reason for his arrest has now come to light. Boosie was taken into custody for the possession of a weapon, a charge that had previously been dropped but has resurfaced once again.
Detailed accounts from federal documents shed light on the events leading up to Boosie's arrest. It was revealed that vigilant officers had come across an Instagram Live video last month in which Boosie appeared to have a gun discreetly tucked into the waistband of his pants.

This prompted the law enforcement authorities to take swift action, pulling over the vehicle in which the rapper was riding, ultimately resulting in the initial gun-related charges. Federal agents have alleged that during the vehicle stop, their attention was drawn to an individual seated in the back, who seemed to be attempting to conceal firearms or other illicit items.

At the time, Boosie claimed he was unarmed, but acknowledged that his security guard possessed a weapon. To the officers' surprise, a loaded Glock 9mm was discovered on the rear passenger seat, which they subsequently linked to the weapon allegedly glimpsed in Boosie's jeans during his Instagram Live broadcast.
Reflecting on his circumstances, Boosie took to Twitter following his arrest and expressed his heartfelt remorse, specifically addressing his children: "I WANNA TAKE THIS TIME TO APOLOGIZE TO MY KIDS, IM SORRY AND I LOVE YALL FOREVER."
As news of his legal troubles spread, it came to light that the rapper had put his luxurious white Rolls-Royce Cullinan up for sale online, with an asking price of $240,000. Naturally, this listing sparked widespread speculation among social media users, fueling discussions about the potential severity of the charges Boosie might be facing.
