According to TMZ the 29-year-old rapper was arrested Thursday after leaving the Moncler store on Rodeo Drive. The Beverly Hills Police Department confirmed the arrest to E! News, stating a Gucci security guard had notified police about a man who appeared to have “a handgun in his waistband” while walking down the street with a group of men. Authorities arrived at the scene shortly after and surrounded DaBaby’s vehicle as he was about to pull out.
The rapper and his three friends were detained as police searched the car. A handgun was reportedly found inside the vehicle and DaBaby was subsequently booked on a misdemeanor charge of carrying a loaded firearm.
“Police made contact with the group after they entered a vehicle and were preparing to leave the area,” a spokesperson for the police department told E! News. “An investigation followed and a 9MM handgun was found in the vehicle.”
TMZ reports the other three men were not charged.
