DJ Paul, part of the group Three 6 Mafia, was arrested the evening of Sunday, October 14 in New York City.
DJ Paul had bought a beer at a local deli after a dinner with friends in Manhattan. He made the mistake of opening the container in public and was thus followed by a police officer. After a search, DJ Paul confessed to having a taser in his pocket. Cops were obligated to confiscate his taser as it is an illegal possession. However, DJ Paul was only charged for the misdemeanor crimes of carrying the illegal possession and an open container of alcohol.
He will face the judge in court this morning.
The officers seemed to enjoy their encounter with DJ Paul. Different sources claim that the officers took pictures with DJ Paul and even sang some of his songs.
