DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Roddy Ricch was arrested for gun possession hours before he was scheduled to perform at the Governor’s Ball music festival in Queens, New York, on Saturday — though the charges were dismissed the following day, according to authorities.
Over the weekend, Ricch whose real name is Rodrick Moore — was arrested alongside two other men, Carlos Collins and Michael Figueroa, at a checkpoint at the venue when they arrived in a 2020 black Cadillac Escalade, Deadline reported.
Citing the New York Police Department, the outlet said that security saw a 9 mm gun and a magazine that held nine rounds of ammunition within the group’s car.
Ricch was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device, and possession of an unlawful feeding device, police said, per ABC 7. Collins, 57, and Figueroa, 46, were also hit with the gun-related charges, the outlet added.
In a last-minute statement, the Governor’s Ball announced in a tweet: “Unfortunately Roddy Ricch is no longer performing today.”
The rapper was set to perform alongside acts including Halsey, Tove Lo, and Flume, to name a few.
Rich’s case, however, was never docketed, the New York Daily News reported, and a clerk at the Queens Criminal Court said his charges were dismissed.
Collins’ charges were also dropped, while Figueroa was arraigned on the charges Sunday, per the outlet.
Rich later addressed the incident during an appearance at Hot 97’s Summer Jam concert on Sunday evening.
