As reported above, legendary actor-musician Big G is now free following a recent arrest, of which the details can be seen below (from Fox DC):
D.C. police picked up Glover — whose legal name is Ralph Glover — on June 26 after responding to a report of a driver in a white Jeep sticking his gun out of a window and making multiple lane changes without signaling.
When they pulled Glover over after determining that his vehicle matched that description, police allegedly found a loaded gun.
Court documents indicate that Glover does not have a license to carry a gun in the District of Columbia.
Glover’s lawyers say he didn’t know about the gun in his vehicle.
It should be noted that, as reported on TMZ, Big G refused allowing the police to search his vehicle upon request; they did so anyway, claiming probable cause.
