Trick Daddy Arrested on Cocaine, Gun Charges
Trick Daddy was arrested outside Miami on Thursday night after police found cocaine and a handgun in his home. The rapper, whose real name is Maurice Young, was stopped on a "sniff warrant" by the Broward County Drug Task Force outside his house as he was getting into his car.
According to an arrest affidavit acquired by NBC 6, the "Let's Go" rapper admitted he had drugs inside the residence, and a search discovered 1g of cocaine as well as a 9mm Sig Sauer and a box of ammunition.
Police charged Young with possession of cocaine, possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon, and driving with a suspended license. He was booked and released on $6,100 bond.
Young has a history of drug and weapon related arrests. In February 2003 he was arrested on gun charges following a dispute at a basketball game, and again in September after police found cocaine and pot in his pocket. He pleaded guilty to cocaine and weapons charges and received probation. In 1991, he was convicted of cocaine possession, carrying a concealed weapon and violating probation and served time in state prison.
