Rapper DaBaby was arrested on charges of carrying a concealed weapon and marijuana on Monday night in his hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina.

The arrest came right after DaBaby performed at the Bojangles Arena.

According to several reports, the rapper was arrested in the parking lot of the venue, where the cops issued him a citation for misdemeanor possession of marijuana. The initial concealed weapon charges were later dropped against the rapper.

Shortly after the incident, he gave an interview with a local news station:

“Seeing how they were unlawfully searching my car – before I went on stage, I continued to perform for my fans, I had my outstanding video production team, the real GOATS, had them prepared… and had this right here put this on me,” DaBaby said, as he flashed a plastic bag of his possessions, which included a mic, “and pulled their own trick on them.”

The rapper claimed that the CMPD pulls him over every time he's in town for a show.
