Waka Flocka Flame got a big break from his airport gun charge. Yesterday Atlanta rapper was found not guilty of carrying a handgun in his carry-on at Atlanta’s airport.
Waka Flocka, born Juaquin Malphurs, was arrested in October 2014 and slapped with charges of carrying a weapon in an unauthorized location. The rapper told the court that he accidentally grabbed his fiancee’s luggage instead of his own. So his defense is it was a simple accident.
It took a jury half an hour to exonerate him of the charges following a four-day trial in a Clayton County court. This will surely be a lesson well learned by Waka Flocka. Check your luggage before you leave the house!
He took to Twitter to thank his lawyer Drew Findling for beating the case.
