Black Rob (real name: Robert Ross) was arrested on Sunday while signing autographs on a Manhattan street, reports New York’s Daily News. The rapper for Bad Boy Records (Sean “Puffy” Combs’s label) was reportedly spotted by two undercover police officers handing a gun to a companion. A search of their vehicle then turned up evidence of the drug Ecstasy. Police said both Ross, 31, and Kwame Thomas, 28, were arrested and charged with criminal possession of a weapon and possession of a controlled substance.
