*Desiigner and four others were arrested Thursday night in New York City following a road rage encounter that led to felony drug and weapons charges, according to TMZ.

It all started when a screaming match broke out between people in the SUV carrying Desiigner and the driver of another vehicle, the website reported. The driver of the other car called 911 and claimed the rapper pointed a gun at him.

The SUV left, but the driver of the car took down the license plate number. Police eventually found the SUV, searched it, and discovered a large quantity of loose pills in the center console, including Oxycontin, according to TMZ.

Desiigner and four others in the SUV were arrested and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of drugs with intent to sell, which are felonies.

Desiigner was also charged with felony criminal possession of a loaded weapon and menacing, for allegedly pointing a gun at the other driver.
