Yung Berg became the latest rapper to be arrested on Saturday. New York police responded to a complaint from a limo driver who said there was a fight between Yung Berg and another person in the car, Cornell Whitfield. Yung Berg was charged with 2nd degree menacing and possession of marijuana and the other man was charged with 2nd degree criminal possession of a weapon plus two counts of menacing.
Two bags of weed were found on Yung Berg and a loaded .45 caliber pistol was found on Cornell Whitfield. Yung Berg's attorney said "a number of media reports have
been inaccurate" but didn't say a lot more besides adding "this unfortunate incident is now a legal matter being clarified and resolved by the authorities."
