Yung Joc was arrested early Sunday, December 23 at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport after cops claimed they found a loaded semi-automatic gun in his carry-on bag.

Yung Joc, a Grammy-nominated rapper best known for his hit single "It's Goin' Down" (2006), was arrested at about 6:20 A.M. Sunday after trying to board a Delta flight to Atlanta with a loaded gun in his carry-on bag, a police spokesman said in a statement, adding that the rap star was attempting to go through a standard security checkpoint when employees discovered a semiautomatic handgun and ammunition in his bag.

Then being questioned and arrested without incident, authorities said the rapper told them he didn't know the weapon was there.

Yung Joc was freed Monday, December 24 on $50,000 bond and his arraignment has been scheduled for Wednesday, December 26 in Cleveland Municipal Court on felony charges for carrying a concealed weapon.

"Yung Joc maintains his innocence. He would appreciate privacy as he addresses these allegations," so said his lawyer, Stanley Jackson Jr.

Joc's debut hit "It's Goin' Down" reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2006, whereas his latest album "Hustlenomics" was released back in August and opened at No. 3 on The Billboard 200.
