Boosie Badazz is facing federal firearm charges after a state court dropped the same charge against him. Police say a Instagram Live video of an alleged gun in his waist led to his arrest.
According to documents filed in court, the rapper was arrested after he was seen in an Instagram video with a handgun in his waistband, which he previously denied belonged to him.
Lil Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, was arrested on Wednesday after his presence caused a stir in the YNW Melly trial, where he showed support for the rapper who is on first-degree murder charges and facing the death penalty if convicted.
His latest arrest is connected to his arrest in early May on gun charges. The rapper, however, beat the case, which was dismissed on Wednesday morning, but cops immediately arrested him shortly after outside of the courtroom on one count of felon in possession of a firearm.
