Rapper in Florida faces drug charges

One rising rap artist has been arrested in Florida. The arrest on drug charges took place on a Thursday. It occurred after police said they broke up a drug-related deal in which he was involved.

The 18-year-old man was reportedly seen taking part in the drug deal with a couple of other men. When authorities approached the rapper, he reportedly tried to flee in his vehicle. However, the police car blocked the man.

The rapper and another man at the scene were eventually able to flee and sped away. A police pursuit then ensued. Authorities said the man blew through many red lights, and the chase finally came to a halt at a spot where the man was allegedly seen tossing a gun into a dumpster.

Both of the men who left the reported drug deal were said to have been uncooperative and did not obey police when they were told to reveal their hands. Authorities said they smelled marijuana in their car and recovered the gun and an ammunition magazine from the dumpster in addition to finding a magazine in their vehicle. The rapper, who has a felony for kidnapping, faces charges of possessing a weapon while being a felon, and both he and the other man face drug charges, among other charges.

As the case moves forward through the state's criminal justice system, the men facing drug charges and other charges -- alongside their legal counsel -- might have the chance to negotiate plea agreements in exchange for lesser charges or more favorable sentencing considerations. Whether to plea bargain or proceed to trial to fight the charges is a decision that rests solely with a defendant. The criminal defense in such a case in Florida will pursue the outcome believed to be in the defendant's best interests.
