Maurice Young aka Miami rapper Trick Daddy was arrested Thursday on cocaine and weapons charges.
Broward Sheriff’s Office obtained a ‘sniff warrant’ for Young’s home in which officers are allowed to search the outside of a home with dogs. When Young pulled out of his driveway driving a green two-door coup, officers asked Young to get out of the car. While in the process of complaining, the officers informed Young that he was driving with a suspended license. While Young did confirm that, he asked whether the stop was because of child support payments.
According to reports, ‘when the officer explained he was on the property because a judge had signed a sniff warrant, Young admitted he had cocaine and marijuana in his home. Young initially signed a consent form to enter the home, then rescinded after police entered.
When the officers obtained a search warrant for Young’s home, they found a 9mm Sig Sauer P220 handgun, a gram of cocaine, and ammunition. He was immediately taken into custody and charged with possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. In addition to this, he was also charged with driving with a suspended license and possession of cocaine.
This is not the first time Young has been in trouble with the law. In 1991, he served two years in a Florida state prison for carrying a concealed firearm and cocaine possession. In 2003, he was charged with ‘assault after threatening to kill a man after a basketball game. And in 2007, he was charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest after a brawl at Tootsie’s Cabaret.’
As a rapper, Young got his stardom in 1996 after appearing on a track with Luther Campbell from the group 2 Live Crew.
