It looks like the famous Dex was behind bars for allegedly carrying a hidden weapon.
According to TMZ, law enforcement sources revealed that Dex was in the back seat of a vehicle on Tuesday when authorities ran it over because it had no license plate on the back. Law enforcement source says Dex reportedly tried to get off and walk away during the incident.
However, the LAPD was able to arrest him and during the search they learned that one of the other passengers was on parole and they reportedly found a loaded gun under the seat Dex was sitting on. They eventually arrested him for transporting a hidden weapon.
Authorities told the website that he was booked for a crime and his bail was set at $ 35,000. He is currently in prison.
Dex got in touch with authorities last week when he told them that someone robbed him at gunpoint and stole thousands of dollars and a $ 50,000 watch. Nobody has to be arrested in the event of a robbery.
If you all remember, Famous Dex made headlines late last year after many of his fans and colleagues voiced their concerns about his health after pictures surfaced online suggesting he needed help. Fellow artists like NLE Choppa and John Gabbana (formerly known as Boonk Gang) publicly showed their support and offered Dex some words of encouragement when they asked his team to help.
Last December, Rich The Kid shared pictures on his Instagram of Famous Dex as he headed for rehab.
The famous Dex returned to social media earlier this year.
