According to TMZ, Vic Mensa The Roc Nation rapper pleaded no contest to carrying a concealed weapon and received two years of probation. The second count of carrying an unregistered loaded firearm was dropped.
The Chicago native was originally facing two years in jail, but through a plea deal, was able to get away with the probation, a $500 fine and $1,325 in restitution.
Mensa was stopped by police in Beverly Hills, California four months ago for running a stop sign. The officer discovered he was carrying a loaded, unregistered handgun without a concealed weapons permit, and promptly arrested him. After serving one night in jail, he posted $35,000 bail.
Mensa is currently preparing the release of his debut album, The Autobiography, which is expected to arrive on Friday (July 21).
