You may not be too familiar with Vic Mensa, but the Beverly Hills Police Department sure is!
The U Mad rapper got pulled over for a traffic violation last week and ended up spending the night in jail for gun possession — even though he had a permit for his firearm!
Law enforcement sources told TMZ the Roc Nation performer was stopped in Beverly Hills for running a stop sign and having tinted windows.
The 23-year-old reportedly told cops he had a gun in his car and showed them his concealed carry permit, except the permit was apparently for another state. Whoops!
Mensa was arrested and booked on a felony count of carrying a concealed weapon. He was released on $35,000 bail after one night in jail.
This isn’t the rapper’s first run in with the Beverly Hills fuzz — last year, cops targeted Mensa at a Barney’s after receiving a call from the store owner accusing Vic’s crew of stealing merchandise.
The rapper says he was racially profiled after cops searched his vehicle and determined nothing was stolen.
Hopefully this is the last of the saga between Vic and the BHPD.
