‘The Chi’ star Jason Mitchell has been arrested in Mississippi on felony weapons and drug charges.
The actor was booked into Harrison County Jail Wednesday and he’s facing four felony charges … according to online records.
Jason, who played Eazy-E in the N.W.A biopic, is facing two felony charges for possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, plus two more felony charges for possession of a weapon by a felon.
Jail records indicate Jason was busted with two guns, including a Glock 19 pistol and a mini Draco AK47 semi-automatic pistol.
Jason’s rep released a statement, saying:
“Jason is at home with his family right now, working on an amazing new project. News stories move fast and oftentimes without all of the facts. This misunderstanding will be resolved shortly. We trust that the court systems blind justice will protect Jason’s rights and allow him to tell his story. During the Pandemic it’s best we focus on the importance of our Nation growing back to our full capacity.”
The audacity of that man to use the coronavirus pandemic as a way to deflect from his misdeeds. Shameful.
