Rapper Young Joc charged with carrying concealed weapon after airport arrest

Rapper Yung Joc was charged Monday with carrying a concealed weapon after police said a loaded gun was found in his carry-on bag at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
The 25-year-old rapper, whose real name is Jasiel Robinson, was arrested Sunday morning before boarding a Delta Air Lines flight, police spokesman Lt. Thomas Stacho said.
Police said they found a semiautomatic handgun and ammunition in Robinson's carry-on bag. He told them he did not know the weapon was there, Stacho said.
Robinson was trying to go through a standard security checkpoint when he was stopped and questioned, then arrested without incident, said Fred Szabo, airport commissioner.
Robinson was freed Monday on $50,000 (euro34,727) bond. He is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.
"Yung Joc maintains his innocence. He would appreciate privacy as he addresses these allegations," said his lawyer, Stanley Jackson Jr.
Neither Szabo nor Stacho knew which flight Robinson tried to board or where it was headed.
Yung Joc's albums include "New Joc City" and "Hustlenomic$."
