Rapper Obie Trice has pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of an unregistered gun in connection with a home shooting in December 2019.

Trice was charged with a misdemeanor in connection with the shooting of his girlfriend's teenage son in Commerce Township. 

On Dec. 4, Trice had reportedly been drinking all day before he got into a physical altercation with his girlfriend. He eventually pulled a gun on her and her son, and as the son tried to wrestle with Obie, the gun went off and struck the teen in his hip.

The teen suffered a broken pelvis and gunshot wound to his groin during the incident.

At the time, Trice was arrested for violating a friend of the court warrant for child support payments, with a bond of $16,900, according to jail records.

The misdemeanor charge is punishable by up to 90 days in jail.
