Performer Vic Mensa sang at the March for Our Lives on Saturday in Washington, D.C., a demonstration event advocating for gun control. But did you know the rapper was arrested last year for keeping a loaded firearm in his car without a permit?
Vic Mensa‘s gonna dodge jail time in his loaded gun case after cutting a deal, unless he chooses jail over cutting a check.
The D.A.’s office tells TMZ the Roc Nation rapper will get 2 years probation after pleading no contest to carrying a concealed firearm in his car. The second count of carrying an unregistered loaded firearm was dropped.
He could’ve gotten as much as 2 years in jail, but now he’s free and clear if he pays $500. He does have another option — serve 2 days in jail. Since he just dropped his new album, “The Autobiography” … we’re guessing he’ll pay. He also has to cover $1,325 in restitution.
Yes, a guy who was invited to promote stricter gun laws was arrested for illegally possessing a firearm. That’s irony.
But I guess he believes ‘guns for me but not for thee’.
