Rapper Fabolous (real name: John Jackson) was arrested last night (Jan. 16) in New York for the second time in two days after police said they discovered guns in a car in which he was riding. Police stopped a Suburban in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn after it ran a red light. When officers approached the vehicle, they saw a gun handle sticking out of the back seat. A second gun was discovered between the car's seats, said Detective Robert Price, a police spokesperson.

Police charged the driver, Reginald Rivers, 44, of Brooklyn, with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and a violation for running a red light. The passengers, Rascharm Davis, 25, of Brooklyn, and Fabolous were charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

On Wednesday, the 25-year-old rapper was arrested in Manhattan when he was discovered driving with a suspended license. The Fort Lee, N.J., resident faces a charge of aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

A spokesperson for Fabolous' record label, Elektra, declined to comment. The rapper's next album for the label, "Street Dreams" was originally scheduled for a Jan. 14 release but has been pushed back to March 25.
