Roddy Ricch and Fans Shout “F NYPD” After He Was Arrested and Released On Gun Charges in NY.
Ricch was arrested in Queens for gun possession just hours before he was set to take the stage at Governor’s Ball—only to see the charges dismissed the next day.
Ricch, 23, whose real name is Rodrick Moore, and two other men were in a black 2020 Cadillac passing through a checkpoint in Citi Field, where the music festival was being held, about 6:30 p.m. Saturday when police stopped them and found a loaded firearm, NYPD officials said.
They found a Canik 9mm handgun with 9 bullets loaded into its high-capacity magazine under a passenger seat, officials said.
Ricch, of Los Angles, Carlos Collins, 57, of New Jersey, and Michael Figueroa, 46, of Brooklyn were all charged with criminal possession of a weapon.
Figueroa was arraigned on the charges in Queens Criminal Court Sunday.
