After being pulled over for a traffic violation for allegedly running a red light and having tinted windows, Vic Mensa was arrested on Feb. 28 at about 2:20 p.m. PT in Beverly Hills for carrying a gun in his car and the wrong carry permit, a representative from the Beverly Hills Police Department tells Billboard.
Per TMZ, Mensa told the police he had the gun in his possession, but was arrested after it turned out he had an invalid carry permit from another state. Police confiscated the gun. Mensa spent the night in jail and was released on $35,000 bail.
Last year, Beverly Hills police accused Mensa of robbing a department store after he spent $4,000 there. Mensa, in turn, accused the officers of racial profiling. He shared his story on Snapchat afterwards.
