Offset was arrested over the weekend after being pulled over for crossing a solid yellow line. Once pulled, the officer says weed was smelled in the car. Police found 3 handguns and $107,000 in the car, charging Offset with possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a weapon during a crime and possession of marijuana (one ounce or less), and an improper lane change, 2 felonies and 2 misdemeanors.
Offsets lawyer is now questioning the validity of the pull over, since no sobriety test was given after weed was smelled. Being that it is hard to test for weed sobriety, Officers can take the suspect to the hospital to get a warrant and blood test, but that was not done. Instead, Offset was charged for the small amount he had.
Being that Offset is a felon, having a gun is not allowed, but his lawyer says Offset’s bodyguard, who was a passenger in the car, is who possessed the gun. Hopefully the courts will buy that, and drop some of Offset’s charges.
