It looks like Famous Dex has found himself behind bars for reportedly carrying a concealed weapon.
According to TMZ, law enforcement sources revealed that Dex was riding in the backseat of a vehicle on Tuesday when authorities pulled it over for not having a license plate on the back of it. The law enforcement source says that Dex reportedly tried to get out and walk away during the incident.
However, LAPD was able to detain him, and during the search, they learned that one of the other passengers was on probation, and they reportedly found a loaded gun under the seat that Dex was sitting in. So they ended up arresting him for carrying a concealed weapon.
Authorities told the site that he was booked on a felony charge, and his bail has been set at $35,000, and at the moment he is still in jail.
Dex came in contact with authorities last week when he told them that someone robbed him at gunpoint and stole thousands of dollars and a $50,000 watch. No one has yet to be arrested in the robbery case.
If you all remember, Famous Dex made headlines late last year after many of his fans and peers expressed their concerns about his health after images surfaced online and suggested that he was in need of help. Fellow artists such as NLE Choppa, and John Gabbana (formerly known as Boonk Gang) publicly showed their support and offered Dex some encouraging words as they urged his team to get him some help.
Last December, Rich The Kid shared images to his Instagram of Famous Dex as he headed off to rehab.
Famous Dex made his return to social media earlier in the year.
