Benzino could be facing up to 15 years behind bars over some serious drug charges.
The former rapper and reality TV star Benzino has been fairly lowkey over 2018, but there is a good reason for this.
Breaking news outlet, TMZ has discovered that Benzino was arrested back in January 2017 and charged with felony possession of THC oil gummies (22 grams), felony possession of 6 MDMA pills and misdemeanor possession of less than an ounce of weed - in Georgia.
According to legal docs, the authorities executed a search warrant at his Atlanta apartment and found the drugs in drawers and on the kitchen counters. They arrested him, and he quickly posted the 12k bail.
According to TMZ, his legal team argued the search was illegal, but a judge ruled cops searched the property legally. Zino will find out his fate fairly soon when his case will head to trial in court on Wednesday.
Bad news for Benzino. Georgia doesn't play when it comes to drugs. Recently it was revealed that Ty Dolla $ign is also facing 15 years behind bars as he was indicted on coke charges.
