In early September, Desiigner was arrested in New York City on gun and drug charges following a road rage incident. A few days later, two charges had been dropped: criminal possession of a loaded weapon and criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell. But Desiigner (real name: Sidney Selby) still faced misdemeanor charges of menacing and criminal possession of a controlled substance. It was later reported that the remaining controlled-substance charge was based on false information. Today, prosecutors moved to drop the drug charge and seal the case, TMZ reports and the New York City District Attorney’s office has confirmed to Pitchfork.
The DA’s office told Pitchfork that Desiigner and three co-defendants—Michael Davis, CJ McCoy and Utril Rhaburn—accepted ACDs, or “adjournments in contemplation of dismissal,” deals that typically result in a case being dismissed and sealed. The ACDs applied to all charges, according to the DA’s office. None of the four co-defendants appeared in court.
Two lawyers for Desiigner, Ian Nyles and Stacey Richman, told TMZ, “We’re happy he’s been exonerated.”
