Rapper Trick Daddy Arrested For Possessing Gun, Drugs

FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – The Liberty City rapper known as Trick Daddy was arrested Thursday and charged with a long list of felonies including possession of a loaded gun and cocaine.

Trick Daddy’s real name is Maurice Young.  The 39-year-old singer is a convicted felon and is not allowed to possess guns.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office report states Young was under surveillance by the Broward County Drug Task Force Thursday morning. Detectives said they saw him in the driveway of his Miramar home inside a green two-door coupe backing away from the residence.  Detectives were at the location with a pending sniff warrant, the report stated.

The report goes on to say a detective made contact with Young and asked him to get out of his vehicle.  The complaint affidavit revealed Young admitted to having used powder cocaine inside his home just before detectives arrived and possibly marijuana, but said he did not have a grow house.

The report also stated a search warrant was executed later in the afternoon and detectives found a gram of powder cocaine in a nightstand and a 9mm gun and a box of ammunition.

Young was arrested and the report listed the charges as two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of cocaine and driving with a suspended license.

Court records show Trick Daddy is out of jail on $6,100 bond.

This isn’t the first time Trick Daddy has been in trouble.

In 1991, he was convicted of cocaine possession, carrying concealed firearm and violating probation for which he served two-and-a-half years in prison.

He was also arrested on assault charges in 2003. In that incident, he allegedly threatened to kill a man over a street basketball game and was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, possession of a firearm (a felony), and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Trick Daddy is best known for his single I’m a Thug.
