According to the Newnan Times-Herald, Louisiana rapper Boosie BadAzz is now facing felony drug and firearm charges following a traffic stop in Newnan, GA.

Torrence Hatch Jr., (Boosie's given name) and his passenger are currently in the Coweta County Jail after investigators reportedly found a loaded firearm and marijuana in their car.

A deputy said he noticed a white Dodge Charger nearly sideswiping a vehicle on Newnan Crossing Bypass.

After speaking with the driver, identified as Hatch, a deputy said he noticed an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

Hatch was detained and placed in the back of a police car while the passenger, identified as Antonio Allen, stayed inside the vehicle.

A search of the vehicle revealed a small bag containing approximately 11 grams of suspected marijuana between the door and Allen’s seat and a loaded 9mm handgun under his seat, according to investigators.

Investigators found a bag containing a large sum of cash, and a vape pen containing suspected THC oil was found in the center console, Bugg said.

Hatch reportedly admitted to talking on the phone while driving – a misdemeanor in the state of Georgia – and that Allen was his bodyguard.

Hatch, 36, and Allen, 30, were both charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a schedule one drug, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Hatch was also charged with failure to maintain lane.

Both men are currently being held at the Coweta County Jail.
