Lloyd Banks and Young Buck were arrested after police allegedly found weapons in a van carrying the rappers and 11 other people as they were leaving the Anger Management 3 tour in New York this morning (August 9).
Reports stated that police pulled the van over for running a red light on 41st and Eighth Avenue in Manhattan.
Police reportedly found two firearms in the vehicle and subsequently arrested eleven passengers. Police allege they found a loaded .40 caliber and a .357 handgun on one of the passengers. Everyone in the vehicle was charged with weapons offenses.
Manager Sha Money XL confirmed with AllHipHop.com that Lloyd Banks and Young Buck were arrested. He declined to comment any further.
"They told the crowd to put their fists in the air and then told the crowd to put up their middle finger," one concert goer told AllHipHop.com. "Then they yelled out f**k the police and the crowd shouted it back."
The other men arrested ranged from age 20-41.
The NYPD's Intelligence Unit has spent the last few days checking the streets to see if any violence might be directed towards 50 Cent and G-Unit during their stop in New York.
With heavy police presence, the Anger Management concert went off without a hitch last night and will resume tonight.
Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, Mobb Deep, Olivia, Tony Yayo, M.O.P. 50 Cent, D12, Proof, Obie Trice, Stat Quo, Pitbull, Lil’ Jon and Lil’ Scrappy are also featured on the tour.
