According to court information, he was in possession of a loaded 45-caliber gun on Sept. 12, 2013 and days later on Sept. 14, 2013 he was in possession of a loaded 40-caliber gun. In both incidents he displayed his gun, made threats directed to a police officer and a attorney and was acted erratically according to a friend who called police.

Davis was indicted by a federal grand jury on November 19, 2013, he will remain in custody, at this time, in the DeKalb County Jail in Atlanta until his trial. He could face a maximum sentencing of 10- years for each count and fines up to $250,000.

The Atlanta rapper was convicted twice in 2005, once for assault with a deadly weapon along with aggravated assault and once for the possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana in Florida. His rap sheet also includes countless reckless driving charges.

Atlanta Police Chief George N. Turner stated, “The Atlanta Police Department has made it a priority to take violent repeat offenders off our city streets and see that they are held responsible for their actions. We are thankful for the cooperation with our partner agencies, especially the U.S. Attorney’s Office, in bringing Mr. Davis to justice. We cannot tolerate convicted felons ignoring the law by carrying firearms and endangering our citizens,”
