Miami Rapper Trick Daddy Arrested For Possession of Cocaine

Caught Sleeping Behind the Wheel

Miami rapper and restaurant owner Maurice Young, also known as Trick Daddy, was arrested on DUI charges and cocaine possession earlier this year. The police received calls about someone driving a Range Rover who ran red lights and hit stop signs. The Miami Herald reported Young was caught sleeping behind a wheel when officers approached his vehicle. He confessed to having 5 drinks after a club, and had “slurred speech, bloodshot, watery and glassy eyes.” The rapper failed a field sobriety test after police smelled alcohol on his breath.

After Young was arrested and taken to Hammocks District Station, authorities found cocaine in a dollar bill, reporting it after Young was placing items in a plastic bag. Soon after, he was arrested and incurred “one charge of felony cocaine possession.” Young was wanted for a warrant, and his bail set to $5,000 for the cocaine possession and $1,000 for a DUI charge. In prior years, Young was charged with firearm possession, and has been arrested on a cocaine possession charge, “carrying a concealed firearm, and violating probation.” The rapper has opened a successful soul food restaurant in Miami and has made appearances in the media in recent years.
