Young Money rapper Cory Gunz was arrested for gun possession in the Bronx, New York this weekend. The star was busted this past Saturday (January 28) afternoon, and his father, rapper Peter Gunz, detailed to MTV News what happened to his son.
"The details are still sketchy, but I can confirm that he was arrested with a firearm yesterday in the Bronx," Gunz told MTV News. "They caught him around 2 p.m. in the afternoon with a loaded gun in his knapsack.
"It was definitely an illegal search," Peter Gunz added.
"I spoke to the arresting officer, and so far, what I'm hearing from him is that they got a phone call at the station saying they should 'look out,' " Gunz said. "According to [the officer], they didn't know he was Cory Gunz. They just saw a bunch of kids following him around. What I will say is that the officer that arrested Cory actually happened to be a cool dude. After arresting Cory, sitting down with him and talking, he felt bad about the situation."
"To go to a precinct and see your son, your junior, in handcuffs, it's heartbreaking," he said. "Anytime you see your child in jail, in the cell, in handcuffs, it's very hard. He's walked down some of the same paths that I walked down, but you never want to see your kids go through what you went through."
