Ghanaian-American rapper, Vic Mensa arrested for gun possession

Vic Mensa was caught riding with a gun, but with the wrong permit.

This isn't the first time Mensa has been pinned down by the Beverly Hills police.

TMZ.com is reporting that Chicago rapper Vic Mensa was arrested last week on a felony count for carrying a concealed weapon in Beverly Hills.

The cops pulled the rapper over for allegedly running a stop sign, in addition to having illegal, dark tinted windows. We're told he informed cops he had a gun in his vehicle and showed them his concealed carry permit.

But when the police check the permit a little closer, they realized it was issued for another state.

Mensa was arrested and taken to jail.

Vic Mensa is now free on a $35,000 bail following his arrest last week for gun possession. Mensa posted a video on social media, alleging that the cops pulled him over and accused him of stealing $4,000 from a Barneys department store.
