Roddy Ricch didn’t make his scheduled appearance at the Governors Ball on Saturday (June 11). Instead, he was reportedly arrested on weapons possession charges hours before his set.
According to TMZ, Roddy and his team were stopped at a CITI Field security checkpoint. Authorities searched the vehicle where they discovered a loaded firearm, nine rounds of ammunition and a large magazine.
Governors Ball issued a tweet on the matter, which read, “Unfortunately Roddy Ricch is no longer performing today.”
Ultimately, Roddy and two other individuals were arrested and charged with four counts of criminal possession of a weapon, possession of a large capacity ammo feeding device and unlawful possession of that device.
The arrest marks another low point in rap’s relationship with the police, particularly in New York during festival season. Last year, Fetty Wap was arrested on federal drug charges ahead of his Rolling Loud New York performance. In recent weeks, Governors Ball has been forced to scramble for acts to perform. On Tuesday (June 7), Migos were no longer scheduled to perform at the festival due to “circumstances beyond [their] control.”
