However, this isn’t Porter’s first brush with the law - he was arrested for gun possession back in February in California following a traffic stop.

And in 2018, he was arrested and charged with shooting at an occupied vehicle - it was reported that the incident occurred following a ‘dispute’ breaking out between the rapper and someone else.

He was released on a $69,000 bail.

The following year, Porter was arrested on a charge of felony gun possession after cops found an unregistered loaded handgun on his person. At the time, Porter’s manager denied that the rapper had ever been in possession of the gun. He was later released on a reported $35,000 bail.
