Desiigner was arrested last night on his way home from New York Fashion Week festivities following a road rage incident.
According to TMZ, the rapper was arrested on a felony drug charge as well a weapons charge, after he allegedly pointed a gun at another driver during a screaming match. During the argument, the driver of the other car called 911 claiming the rapper threatened him with a loaded weapon. When cops arrived and searched the car, they found a loaded gun as well as loose pills in the center console, including Oxycontin.
