Blueface was arrested Tuesday afternoon in Las Vegas on suspicion of attempted murder.
The Los Angeles rapper, whose real name is Johnathan Porter, was taken into custody around 2:40 p.m. outside a business in the 300 block of Hughes Center Drive, according to a statement released by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
The 25-year-old was reportedly dining at Lo-Lo’s Chicken and Waffles Tuesday (November 15) before he was busted in what seemed like an undercover operation by cops.
