Sheck Wes Arrested in New York on Gun & Drugs Charges

Rapper Sheck Wes was arrested Wednesday morning in New York after cops found a gun and marijuana in his car during a traffic stop.


He was driving a 2019 Lamborghini SUV with 3 friends when he was pulled over by the Police in Harlem for excessive window tint. When cops realized it was smelling of weed, they decided to search it and found a loaded 9mm Smith & Wesson pistol in a bag on the passenger side, reports TMZ.

Sheck, who is signed to Travis’ Cactus Jack label, and his 3 passengers were each booked for felony possession of a loaded firearm and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. He was also cited for not having a driver’s license.

Last year, his former girlfriend Justine Skye had accused Sheck Wes of abuse and stalking. Skye called the rapper her “abuser,” detailing an instance where she and her friends were followed by Sheck and his entourage in cars.
