Blac Youngsta has been arrested on weapon charges following a traffic stop in Houston, Texas. As TMZ reports, the rapper has been placed behind bars because police officers discovered three pistols, prohibited ammo, and marijuana in the car that the rapper was traveling in. Youngsta and three other individuals were in the car at the time. They were pulled over for allegedly running a red light. 

Youngsta has been charged with felony possession of a prohibited weapon, with his armor-piercing ammo cited as the culprit. It was not revealed whether the ammo was separate from the gun, or if the weapon was loaded with the rounds at the time. Two of the other individuals have not been charged, while another passenger in the car, Marcus Dion Cartwright, has been charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon.

As of right now, the rapper is being held in Harris County jail. Complex has reached out to representatives of Blac Youngsta for comment.

Earlier this week, he dropped the video for his single "Forgiveness," which is taken from his new project Church on Sunday. The Memphis-native has yet to announce a release date for Church on Sunday, but he has promised that it'll be on the way "soon." It's unclear if his arrest in Houston will impact the release of the project.
