The arrest report details that Southside was targeted after police observed a heavily-tinted Mercedes SUV. After the vehicle came to a stop, police discovered that Southside's driver's license had been suspended. The report also indicates that two weapons were discovered in the vehicle; a handgun near his feet and another behind the passenger's seat, both loaded.
Though he claimed that he had a permit to carry a concealed weapon, the report indicates that it too was suspended. He was eventually arrested only to be released on a $5,500 bond. At this moment, it's uncertain as to whether or not these new charges will bear any serious ramifications for the prolific 808 Mafia producer.
