The Young Money rapper finds himself arrested after being pulled over for a minor traffic violation because police discover an active warrant stemming from his four other traffic incidents.
Another rapper has found himself on the wrong side of the law over the weekend. Shortly after news came out that Snoop Dogg got arrested on Saturday, January 7, Tyga was reported to have been thrown into jail. While the "Sweat" rapper was busted with a small amount of marijuana, the Young Money MC got into trouble because of traffic violations.
The "Rack City" rapper was actually pulled over by the police for a routine traffic violation, TMZ reported. During the stop, cops discovered that the 22-year-old had an active warrant for his arrest that stemmed from four other traffic incidents, which include driving without a license, registration violations and unlawful acts of financial responsibility.
Tyga, whose real name is Michael Stevenson, was then brought to the Clark County Detention Center where he was booked and placed behind bars. He was released the following day on his own recognizance. On Sunday, January 8, he shared an optimistic message to his Twitter followers, "Do something Positive today!"
The "Coconut Juice" rapper is currently on the road promoting his upcoming album "Careless World: Rise of the Last King".
