Loaded gun. Suspended driver's license. Cocaine.

Yesterday morning, Trick Daddy (government name Maurice Young) was stopped by members of the Broward County Drug Task Force while leaving his home in Miramar.

According to the arrest report, the 39-year-old lupus-afflicted rapper was behind the wheel without proper certification. So police requested a search warrant, eventually finding a weapon stashed in the bedroom and narcotics on the nightstand.

The charges: Possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of ammunition by a felon, possession of cocaine, and driving with a suspended license.

Over the years, Trick Daddy's had lots of trouble with the law

From 1991 until '94, the rapper served two-and-a-half years in state prison after being convicted on cocaine, gun, and probation violation charges.

A decade later in 2003, he got into a scuffle during a pickup basketball game, pulled a gun on 27-year-old Pernell Paige, and threatened to kill him. The rapper was charged for aggravated assault with a firearm, use of firearm in commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Just months after that incident, he and a friend were drinking and acting up while watching a high-school football game. The cops stopped and searched them, finding coke and weed.

In 2006, he was busted for shouting down and throwing punches at a man while hanging around the Lincoln Road Mall on Miami Beach.

This latest arrest, according to the BSO report, stemmed from a pending sniff warrant for Trick Daddy's Miramar residence, which the members of the Broward County Drug Task Force and drug dogs arrived to executed at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 3.

Ok, the suspended license isn't good from an insurance standpoint, but he wasn't waving the gun around and really who doesn't take a gun when buying cocaine? Sounds fairly reasonable by the law of the jungle to me. Just get that license fixed Trick!

I wait with anticipation for the hard-hitting. Luther Campbell column that exonerates Trick for everything because he's just another witch for the White law enforcement Establishment to hunt.

.....................what a great community HERO for all BLACK children and truly a role model that the children should all follow


i mean just try to find a single BLACK person that would say something BAD about this buffoon which is why the BLACK community will never raise it's game to the level of civility and proper acceptable behavior necessary to thrive and be integrated into society


and NO WHITE person has any influence on these thugs - but the race card played by SHARPTON et al is used to blame even clowns like this on WHITE AMERICA


no,  RACE and stupidity are TWO different issues here, and this character is just stupid
