Former 'Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta' Star Benzino Is Facing Felony Drug Charges for Possession of THC, MDMA, and Marijuana

Former ‘Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta’ star Benzino is in some serious legal trouble thanks to his affinity for narcotics.

via TMZ:

We’ve learned Benzino was arrested back in January 2017 and charged with felony possession of THC oil gummies (22 grams), felony possession of 6 MDMA pills and misdemeanor possession of less than an ounce of weed. 

According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, cops executed a search warrant at the producer’s ATL apartment and found the drugs in drawers and on the kitchen counters. He was arrested and posted $12k bail. Benzino’s legal team argued the search was illegal, but a judge ruled cops searched the pad legally.

Fast forward to now … we’re told Benzino’s legal team will learn Wednesday in court when the case is headed to trial … which could be as soon as next month, if he doesn’t cop a plea.

If convicted, Benzino could face up to 15 years behind bars. 

Yikes. We hope he doesn’t have to go away for his son’s sake.
