Rapper Lil Flip Arrested with AR-15 Assault Rifle

Uh-oh! Rapper Lil Flip, whose real name is Wesley Eric Weston, was caught ridin’ dirty in his Dodge Challenger in Louisiana doing 86 in a 75 mph zone.

The 31-year-old rapper was pulled over for speeding but ended up getting busted for marijuana possession and for having an illegally owned Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle in his vehicle.

The Houston rapper and his passenger Olanza Sanders were both arrested, with Lil Flip getting booked on charges of speeding, third-offense possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm in the presence of a controlled dangerous substance.

Flip’s passenger Sanders was charged with illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and is already out of the DeSoto Detention Center on $25,000 bond.

The hip-hop star was arrested on Wednesday and is still sitting in a jail cell in Louisiana on 35,000 bond.

Lil Flip’s most recent album, entitled “Ahead of My Time” was released back in 2010.

The rapper made headlines in 2004 for his bitter feud with Atlanta rapper T.I. that even got physical.
