Waka Flocka Dodges Gun Charges, Thanks to Tammy Rivera

This was a close one.

Published March 10, 2017

Back in October 2014, Waka Flocka found himself in hot water after getting caught carrying a loaded gun into the airport in Atlanta.

The rapper was previously a convicted felon, a detail holding the potential to create an extra headache for himself. Luckily for Waka, he has since been acquitted of the 2014 gun charge, thanks solely to his wife, Tammy Rivera.

According to the report, the Clayton County jury decided Thursday (Mar. 9) that Waka was not guilty, reportedly arriving at the verdict in less than 30 minutes.

The reason why?

As reported, Waka's winning defense had to do directly with Rivera, due to the fact that the rapper accidentally took her bag to the airport without any knowledge that a loaded weapon was concealed inside.

Considering Rivera has stood by her man in the past despite past infidelity issues and is now his alibi, Waka better be counting his blessings...
