Federal prosecutors claim Lil Zay hopped in an Uber with a Glock, and after riding from Manhattan to Queens … forgot the weapon in the vehicle.
According to the authorities, the weapon was enhanced with a “switch” device … which turns standard firearms into semi-automatics. The Department of Justice has been cracking down on such enhancements.
The Uber driver contacted the police and Lil Zay was arrested for weapon possession and being a felon in possession of a firearm … charges that could land him in prison for 20 years if convicted.
Lil Zay went live on Instagram the day of his arrest and later called on Jay-Z and Kim Kardashian to help with his case … which hasn’t happened yet.
