Two of Juice WRLD's security guards were arrested at the time of his death.
We are extremely saddened to learn about the passing of 21-year-old musical superstar Juice WRLD. The young man suffered a seizure this weekend at Chicago's Midway Airport, being pronounced dead at the hospital. Many have reacted to the news and, with an autopsy scheduled for later today, his exact cause of death will soon be determined. One detail that has been largely skipped over is the arrest of his security guards, which occurred just after police arrived on the scene.
As reported by Page Six, two men who were hired as security guards for Juice WRLD were arrested on gun charges. When paramedics and police officers arrived at the private hangar where the rapper, real name Jarad Higgins, was convulsing, two men on his security team were found with guns on them and were arrested. The men had applicable conceal and carry licenses, allowing them to own firearms in the state of Illinois. However, they did not have the proper paperwork to bring the guns to an airport. They were arrested and charged with misdemeanor gun violations, according to the report.
