NLE Choppa is now behind bars facing a crazy load of charges. The 18-year-old rapper–born Bryson Lashun Potts–was taken into custody on burglary, drugs, and weapon charges on Sunday, March 28th. He was booked into Broward County Jail in Fort Lauderdale, Fl.
His charges are burglary of an unoccupied structure, carrying a concealed firearm, possession of cannabis of 20 grams or less, and possession of the generic version of Xanax called Alprazolam.
This is sad news for NLE Choppa because lately he’s been promoting his clean lifestyle, including meditation, and revealed that he stopped smoking weed earlier this year.
“After I got out that meditation, I just started to realize everything was energy,” he told Fox Soul’s “The Mix.” “I tried to smoke when I came out of my meditation and I ate some meat, and after I did that, I felt the same way I did before I meditated. I started to realize what was making me think a certain way. I kid you not, I cold-turkeyed myself a few days later and I stopped eating meat. I told my friends if they was around me smoking weed, they couldn’t be around me. I really started to cut a lot out of my life.”
He’s currently still sitting behind bars and his bail is set at $4,500. During his arrest, NLE mentions he was set up during his arrest for drug and gun possession.
