Roddy Ricch was arrested on Saturday while trying to enter Governors Ball with a loaded weapon. The rapper, who was scheduled to perform at the NYC festival later that day, was apparently stopped at a security checkpoint on his way in, where law enforcement officials found a loaded firearm inside his vehicle. TMZ reports that Roddy Ricch, along with two other people in the car, were arrested. He was been charged with criminal possession of a weapon, possession of a large capacity ammo feeding device, and unlawful possession of that device.

Governors Ball tweeted on Saturday evening that Roddy Ricch would no longer be performing.

UPDATE (6/13): Roddy Ricch was released from custody on Sunday, and the weapons charges against him were dropped. As Rolling Stone reports, he showed up for his scheduled appearance at Hot 97’s Summer Jam later that day, where he led a chant of “Fuck NYPD.”
