Migos rapper Offset has been arrested in Atlanta, Georgia for alleged gun possession, E! News can confirm.

On Friday, the artist, who is currently on probation, was driving a vehicle that was pulled over for having tinted windows, TMZ reported. It was during a search of the car that authorities reportedly found the firearm.

He has since been charged with four crimes: possession of firearm by felon, possession of one ounce or less of marijuana, possession of weapon during a crime and an improper lane change.

The 26-year-old was put on five years of probation stemming primarily from a 2015 drugs and weapons charge. It was terminated early and he is no longer on probation.

Just a few weeks ago, the musician and his wife, Cardi B, welcomed their daughterKulture Kiara Cephus, into the world. 

Offset has not commented on the arrest. E! News has reached out to his rep for confirmation.
