Roddy Ricch is Free
The rapper was released from custody Sunday afternoon, 24 hours after being arrested on gun charges prior to his performance in the Governors Ball.
Roddy and two friends stopped by police vehicles at a security checkpoint on their way to the festival. After searching the car, police reportedly found a loaded firearm, nine rounds of ammunition and a large capacity magazine.
Roddy, along with his driver, Carlos Collins, and his bodyguard, Michael Figueroa, have been charged with four counts, including criminal possession of a weapon, possession of a large-capacity ammunition feeding device, and illegal possession of that device.
On Sunday afternoon, Roddy was released from custody and all charges against him and Collins were dropped. According to the New York Daily News, Figueroa was charged with charges in Queens Criminal Court.
