Police say a rapper from the Bronx has been arrested for possessing multiple loaded weapons.
Bronx rapper Lil Tjay was arrested Monday evening after cops say they found multiple loaded guns inside of the Cadillac Escalade he was driving in.
The 21-year-old Tione Jayden Merritt, 21, was in the SUV with four of his friends when cops pulled them over.
The rapper and two other people were later charged with criminal possession of a weapon.
This comes seven months after Lil Tjay was shot several times during an attempted robbery at a New Jersey shopping plaza.
