Canadian rapper Tory Lanez has been temporarily detained at Las Vegas airport after TSA agents discovered a “large” amount of marijuana in one of his bags, according to TMZ.
The entertainer was attempting to board a flight leaving Vegas on Sunday morning when officers found the pot. He was briefly detained before being released.
The “Jerry Sprunger” rapper was charged in October 2020 with shooting Megan Thee Stallion earlier this year in the Hollywood Hills.
Last week, a medical report obtained by Page Six revealed that medics found three major bullet fragments in Megan Thee Stallion’s feet after Lanez shot her following an argument inside a vehicle in July 2020, but she initially refused to tell doctors and police that she had been shot.
Lanez, real name Daystar Peterson, faces one count of assault with a semi-automatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.
He pleaded not guilty in November 2020 and denied the allegations.
The “Luv” singer faces up to 22 years and eight months in prison if convicted. The case is expected to go to trial in September.
