21 Savage Had A Fully Loaded Weapon During Arrest
New details have emerged in the unexpected detainment of 21 Savage by ICE, TMZ has learned.
TMZ reported on Thursday that a “fully loaded Glock” was found in the Dodge Challenger that the rapper was driving when he was apprehended. The car was allegedly spotted by authorities, driving “across the sidewalk” while trying to get onto another road.
At that point, per TMZ, ATF officers pulled 21 over and ordered him to toss the keys out the window. He was immediately arrested and then transported away by agents.
The report also mentions the rapper threw a bottle of some sort out of the window, too. The gun, however, has since been listed in an evidence inventory section as being “connected to” 21 — according to TMZ, it was found inside the car’s glove box.
In addition, TMZ reports that 21 was not the intended target of the operation — it was actually another rapper: Young Nudy. Nudy was apparently in another car driving alongside the Grammy-nominated lyricist.
As previously reported, 21, a U.K. national who’s been living illegally in the U.S. since his visa expired in 2006, is currently in ICE custody and is facing the possibility of deportation.
