UPDATE: Rich The Kid has been released from custody after being booked for carrying a loaded firearm in public.

Rich The Kid is in big trouble. He was popped with a loaded firearm at Los Angeles Airport.

According to a report from TMZ, Rich The Kid was arrested for possession of a loaded firearm at LAX on Monday, Marcy 15th. This is a pretty big offense.

It is reported that Rich The Kid had this piece in his luggage intending to carry it on the plane. This went down around 1:00 PM. At this time it’s unknown if he has been processed.


This isn’t the only time Rich The Kid has been in legal problems. In 2020, he was sued by a jewelry store, Fashion Nova. He was also sued by his management company in 2019. Trying to carry a gun onto a plane is a much bigger deal.

This is a very new story, and there aren’t many details right now. We will keep you updated in case he lets people know what he was thinking with this one.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
