Lil Uzi Vert Cited in Philly for Shooting Paintballs
Lil uzi vert took a paintball game through the streets of his hometown, but the fun didn’t last long – the cops ended up breaking him and his friends.
Police sources tell TMZ … that the Philly-based rapper and some friends were arrested and cited on Tuesday night after reports emerged that they were firing what appeared to be real guns from a vehicle window near N. Philadelphia.
We are told that officers eventually found the car in question and searched it … recovering 7 different paintball guns.
They kind of brought this on their own via social media. Uzi himself documented the paintball war with his buddies on his own IG Live. Someone captured the footage and posted it to YouTube afterward, and you actually see the guy shooting.
The equipment he uses appears to be quite advanced – almost like, well, an Uzi-style paintball gun that can fire multiple bullets at once. In Uzi’s clip, you can even see some of the damage he or a friend of his caused to the side of a nearby SUV …
At one point, Uzi discusses someone implicating “the law” – but he laughs at it, claiming he’s the law in those areas.
Not last night! Uzi and co. were all released after getting tickets.
Our sincere thanks to
