According to an arrest report, Maurice Young — better known as Trick Daddy — was backing his SUV out of his home in Miramar around 10 a.m. Thursday morning when officers asked him to get out of his car. As he complied with their request, he asked them if he was being pulled over for being in arrears in his child support payment.
Nope, that’s not it Trick Daddy.
Apparently, members of the Broward County Drug Task Force were carrying out a surveillance on his home in reference to a pending “sniff” warrant at his residence.
According to the report, Young admitted his license was suspended, he was late in child support, but didn’t consider other possibilities until deputies informed him it concerned drugs.
“He confirmed he was aware and asked if it was in reference to child support payments,” an officer said in the police report.
The 40-year-old rapper subsequently told the arresting officers he had some cocaine and “maybe a marijuana roach, but no grow house.”
Upon entering the home, deputies found a gram of cocaine on a nightstand and a 9mm Sig Sauer gun under a pillow on a nearby bed. They also found ammunition in a closet.
Young told police he is a convicted felon and has been arrested previously for trafficking narcotics, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and possession of cocaine.
Since Young is a convicted felon, it is illegal for him to possess weapons.
He was released from Broward County jail on $6,100 bond early Friday.
Young faces charges of possession of firearm by a convicted felon, possession of ammo by a convicted felon, possession of cocaine, and driving on a suspended license.
Young posted to Twitter since the arrest:
