“Straight Outta Compton” actor, Jason Mitchell is now facing four felony charges after being arrested in Mississippi on Wednesday.
During a traffic stop, police found two pounds of weed and 1,300 doses of MDMA in Mitchell’s car along with two guns, a Glock 19 pistol and a mini Draco AK47 semi-automatic pistol. The weed and ecstasy were said to be packaged in a way consistent to mid-level distribution.
Mitchell is facing two felony charges for possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, plus two more felony charges for possession of a weapon by a felon.
A rep for Mitchell tells TMZ, “Jason is at home with his family right now, working on an amazing new project. News stories move fast and oftentimes without all of the facts. This misunderstanding will be resolved shortly. We trust that the court systems blind justice will protect Jason’s rights and allow him to tell his story.”
