NLE Choppa Strikes Plea Deal in 2022 Gun and Drug Case, Must Serve One Year of Probation

“During this arrest I was set up, substances were planted on me that I don’t consume/use/own, my name was lied upon, and I was mistreated in the process,” NLE wrote.

The incident in question happened in March 2021 where several men in masks were caught on tape hopping over a fence at a Superior Towing lot. The men in the footage walked around the area before two men jumped into a silver Ford Expedition where they were later pulled over. NLE, who was 18 years old at the time, happened to be one of the two men in the vehicle.

Upon searching the vehicle, police found a Glock 27 with an extended magazine and AK-47 Draco pistol in the back seat. Police also found a purple-and-yellow backpack filled with marijuana and Xanax pills.

NLE admitted to hopping over the fence but only did so to grab a watch from a car that was being towed. He claimed he had no idea about the guns but said the book bag was his. He also issued a statement where addressed the situation on Twitter.
