Rapper is seven hours late to court hearing on gun charge

Rapper Yung Joc, accused of bringing a loaded gun to an airport, showed up seven hours late to his arraignment and left court without commenting on the charge.
A judge issued an arrest warrant after Joc, whose real name is Jasiel Robinson, failed to appear in court. The warrant was revoked after Robinson showed up late.
Robinson's attorney, Stanley Jackson Jr., told the court Robinson had personal financial and family obligations. Jackson has said his client maintains his innocence.
Robinson, who faces a felony charge of carrying a concealed weapon, did not enter a plea.
Robinson's only comment to reporters as he left the courtroom was, "Happy New Year."
A preliminary hearing was set for Jan. 25.
Robinson, 27, is accused of trying to take a loaded gun onto a Delta Air Lines flight Sunday. The charge carries a possible jail sentence of up to 18 months.
He was arrested at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport at a security checkpoint as he was heading to a departing flight. Police said they found a semiautomatic handgun and ammunition in his carry-on bag. He told police he did not know the weapon was there and was released Monday.
