Slim Jxmmi of Rae Sremmurd was arrested on Sunday night (August 7) at LAX Airport, TMZ and Pitchfork report. It is believed he was arrested after border agents discovered a warrant, linked to an earlier arrest for marijuana possession, for his arrest in Georgia. However, the rapper's lawyer Steve Sadow has claimed that the warrant against his client had already been dismissed after a plea deal was struck and Jxmmi received five years’ probation. He said that this latest arrest was a result of "miscommunication" between the two departments.

The LAX incident follows a number of legal issues for the Sremmurd brother. In January, he was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery by Miami Police after a domestic violence report. The case was subsequently dropped after his girlfriend recanted her testimony on the alleged asault.

The FADER has reached out for further comment. News of Jxmmi's arrest comes the day after Rae Sremmurd returned with new music, sharing "Community D**k" with Flo Milli.
