According to Memphis local station WREG, the hip hop star, born Bryson Lashun Potts, was arrested in Davie, Fla., near Fort Lauderdale. The 18-year-old was charged with “burglary of an unoccupied structure, carrying a concealed firearm and possession of marijuana and Xanax,” the outlet reports.

According to the Sun Sentinel, the arrest report said police were alerted to people in a “secured vehicle storage lot.” A live camera allegedly showed two men into a closed parking lot. Several people jumped a fence to enter the parking lot.

One of the men who jumped the fence was reportedly Potts.
The “Shotta Flow” rapper was arrested as he was leaving the tow yard, which is when guns and drugs were reportedly found in his car. 

It’s not known what happened to the other people who were with the rapper.

NLE Choppa’s hearing is scheduled for Monday, April 5. He is currently in custody at the Broward County Jail, according to the Sun Sentinel.
