DJ Paul, one-half of Three 6 Mafia, was arrested in New York City Sunday (Oct. 16), for illegally carrying a taser.

The Memphis native was busted for weapons possession after authorities questioned him about carrying an open beer out of an eatery–which is prohibited in the state. Sources close to the rapper told that Paul stopped at a deli on 37th and 9th Avenue in Manhattan to purchase the alcohol, which he had in a sleeve, before police began to follow him.

Upon further inquiry, Paul admitted to having a taser on his person. The weapon was confiscated, and mistakenly discharged by an officer. The 35-year-old was taken into custody both for carrying the device and walking on the street with an open container, which are misdemeanor charges.

After his arrest, police allegedly posed for pictures with him, and sang the chorus to his 2005 single “Stay Fly.”

Paul was booked and is scheduled to be released Monday (Oct. 16) morning. In light of current events, the rapper had to re-schedule an appearance on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, which was slated for today.  His new album, A Person of Interest, drops Oct. 22.
