It looks as if Skinnyfromthe9 may have gotten into a little bit of trouble the same evening as Cardi B‘s Fashion Nova concert at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. The 23-year-old rapper partied it up with his famous friends on Sunset Boulevard, but photos obtained by TMZ show that for a brief moment, he was in handcuffs while being detained by officers.
Law enforcement sources revealed that Skinnyfromthe9 was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over for having illegally tinted windows and no front license plates. During the routine traffic stop, officers saw that marijuana was sitting in the vehicle, out in the open for them to spot, so they made everyone get out of the car. The rapper was asked for his identification but he told the officers that he didn’t have it on him. He admitted that he was on probation with permission to be in Los Angeles. The police officers checked out his story, and once they saw that he was telling the truth, they allowed Skinny and his friends to go on their way.
If you’re wondering why that didn’t end in an arrest, it’s because recreation marijuana is legal in California. However, when in a vehicle, it needs to be in a sealed container or placed in the trunk.
