Tory Lanez was detained after authorities at a Las Vegas airport discovered the musician’s stash.

According to TMZ, the rapper, whose real name is Daystar Shemuel Shua Peterson, was stopped Sunday morning while trying to board a flight. That’s when what is being called a “large” amount of weed was found and he was grounded.

Although delayed for a short time, the rapper was then released sans stash.

The incident, however, seems not to have brought Lanez down. In an Instagram post later Sunday, TMZ reports can be seen giving a performance at Drai’s nightclub.

The appearance, reports HipHopDX, was part of the NFL Draft Weekend celebrations. “Vegas ill be in the f—ing city tonight!!!!!!” he wrote on his Instagram.

The brush with this law this time around was far less serious than another one Lanez had a few years back.

According to HipHopDX, there is an ongoing court case in which Megan Thee Stallion accused the rapper of shooting her in the feet during an argument back in 2020. In that case, 29-year-old Lanez faces charges of felony assault and carrying an unregistered firearm.

Per the New York Post, a medical report obtained by Page Six shows that doctors found three major bullet fragments in Megan Thee Stallion’s feet.

The rapper has pleaded not guilty to the two felony charges, the publication reports, but could face as long as 22 years and eight months in prison if found guilty on both counts.

Although Megan Thee Stallion did not initially say that a shooting had occurred, in August 2020, she opened up about the incident during an Instagram live stream and named Lanez as the shooter, People reports. That fall, Lanez was charged.

Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion are scheduled to be back in court on Aug. 17, with the trial set to begin about a month later on Sept. 14.
