Dallas rapper Trapboy Freddy was arrested this week on a weapons charge, with police discovering a tiger cub locked up inside of his home.
Fox 4 reports Dallas police arrested the rapper on one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. While serving a warrant at Trapboy Freddy’s home, law enforcement found a tiger cup inside Freddy’s Oak Cliff house.
“Well, I’ve never heard of a tiger being in a neighborhood,” said neighbor Adam Henderson. “That’s how strange it is to me.” Henderson added, “I wouldn’t want a tiger in this neighborhood. I don’t even like the fact that I heard one being here.”
WFAA reports the warrant was issued by the U.S. Marshals Service, the United States Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Following Trapboy Freddy’s arrest, rumors spread, prompting the Dallas Zoo to send out a tweet in which it denied that the tiger cub in question was once held in their possession.
“We are aware of a rumor that is circulating – we want to assure everyone our tigers are all accounted for and safe here at the Zoo,” Dallas Zoo wrote on Twitter. “We saw messages online and heard from concerned local neighbors and wanted to set minds at ease about your Dallas Zoo!”
