On October 14th, rapper DJ Paul, from the Oscar-winning hip-hop group Three 6 Mafia, was arrested in New York.
According to AllHipHop, sources close to the Memphis producer said that the incident happened after a dinner in Manhattan.
Paul had allegedly stopped at a bodega to purchase a beer, and opened it while leaving, when an officer started to follow him.
While being searched, the “Poppin’ My Collar” rapper told the police that he had a taser in his possession. Unfortunately as Paul passed the weapon to the assisting officer, it was accidentally discharged.
It is also rumored that while he was being detained, the officers took pictures with him and sang the chorus from Paul’s hit song “Stay Fly.”
DJ Paul was charged with carrying an open container in public and a misdemeanor possession of a weapon and is expected to be released today.
DJ Paul is currently on a promo tour for his new album A Person of Interest which is expected to be released on October 22nd.
