The rapper's arrest followed a reported road rage incident in New York

Desiigner has reportedly been arrested on drug and weapons charges following a road rage incident in New York City.

Early Friday morning (September 9), the NYPD arrested the 19-year-old "Panda" rapper (whose legal name is Sidney Royel Selby III) and four other individuals who were traveling with him in an SUV, according to TMZ and ABC7.

The driver of another vehicle allegedly told police that Desiigner had pointed a gun at him during a dispute that began in the Lincoln Tunnel. Desiigner's SUV drove off after the argument, but the individual is said to have taken down the license plate number and called 911.

Police located the white SUV a short time later and searched the vehicle, allegedly finding drugs in plain sight.

Desiigner has been arrested and charged with criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and third-degree menacing. The four other individuals in the car were also arrested and charged.
