Rapper Offset of rap trio Migos (and recent proud papa of Kulture Kiari with wife Cardi B) was reportedly arrested for gun possession on Friday afternoon.

TMZ reports that Offset (born Kiari Kendrell Cephus) was pulled over outside of Atlanta for driving with tinted windows (wonder what kind of car he was driving … you know cops love to see black men in nice cars).

A witness allegedly saw police discover a gun in the car, and, according to TMZ, the 26-year-old was hit with four charges— possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of marijuana (one ounce or less), possession of a weapon during a crime and an improper lane change.

The New York Post reports that Offset is on probation for drugs and weapons charges from an arrest April of 2015.
