It looks like Lil Pump is in trouble! The flamboyant Soundcloud rapper, whose real name is Gazzy Garcia, was arrested in Miami, FL on Aug. 29 for allegedly driving without a valid driver’s license. 

TMZ reports that police became wary of Pump’s black Rolls Royce when they noticed that the license plate on it was registered to a Mini Cooper. When they pulled him over and asked for his license, he allegedly told them that he’s never had one. Yikes.

It seems like Pump isn’t in too much trouble, though, because his bond was set at just $500. Something tells us he can afford it, based on all of the designer clothes and diamonds he flosses on social media regularly.

Fans weren’t too shook by the arrest, but they did think his mugshot was absolutely hilarious! The 18-year-old is smiling right at the camera in the pic, which had fans on Twitter cracking up.

“Lil Pump’s mug shot is so iconic,” said one tickled fan. “LMAO Lil Pump gives no f–ks,” said another. A third wrote, “Lil Pump got arrested and on his mugshot he smiled like he was at Disney ?????.” Oh, and many fans started a  “#FreeLilPump” hashtag too.

The “Esketit” rapper may be young, but this isn’t his first run-in with the law. Last February, he was arrested after he fired a gun in his home. Originally, his manager told police that intruders shot the door of his house trying to get in, but when police arrived they realized that the shots came from inside the house. 

They later found a gun in the bushes, and arrested Pump for firing a gun in an inhabited building. When they searched his house, they also found marijuana, and since Pump was a teenager at the time, they investigated his mother for endangering a minor. Hopefully this is the last of his legal drama!
