The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office claim Blueface was arrested on February 1. The rapper and his friends reportedly fled after Los Angeles police approached them, and reportedly abandoned their firearms during the escape. Police recovered a loaded, unregistered firearm and charged Blueface with possession. Blueface's manager Wack 100 told TMZ the rapper is innocent and there's surveillance footage that can exonerate him.

Blueface will also appear in court next week on an unrelated gun charge. He pled not guilty to misdemeanor gun possession after an arrest in November 2018, where police initially alleged Blueface took part in a robbery and shooting.

The FADER has reached out to Blueface's representative for more information.
