Saigon Arrested For Knife Possession

Posted By on August 23, 2007

Wasn't Saigon the more responsible rapper? The more moral-bound rapper? Or was that his character on Entourage?

New York rapper Saigon was reportedly arrested on felony knife-possession charges in Manhattan yesterday (august 22).

According to the New York Post, authorities found a gravity knife in Saigon's car after he was pulled over for a traffic infraction 11th Avenue and West 29th Street at 1:25 am. A gravity knife is a fast, powerful weapon, that uses gravity to deploy the blade.

Last year, Sai (born Brian Carenard) was a victim of violence during an attempted robbery outside a Manhattan eatery. The rapper was hit over the head with a bottle by one of two muggers who tried to snatch his chain.

This is not the first time Sai was in trouble with the law. The rapper served six years in federal prison for attempted murder.

Saigon, who had a recurring role on HBO's "Entourage," is currently signed to Just Blaze's Fort Knocks Entertainment. He is gearing up for the release of his debut album The Greatest Story Never Told, which is set to hit stores this year after several delays.
