Detroit, MI – 42 Dugg has reportedly been arrested on a federal gun charge.
According to The Detroit News, the burgeoning Motor City rapper — real name Dion Marquise Hayes — is being temporarily held without bond as federal prosecutors attempt to transfer him to Atlanta federal court to face the gun charge.
The 25-year-old rapper is scheduled to be in federal court in Detroit on Wednesday (March 11) for a detention hearing.
42 Dugg has been on probation since 2010 due to convictions for carjacking and felony firearms possession.
Last November, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents received a tip he fired a 9mm Glock at Stoddard’s Range and Guns in Atlanta, a violation of his probation terms. Surveillance video showed him possessing, loading and firing the pistol.
42 Dugg signed to Yo Gotti’s CMG label in collaboration with Lil Baby’s 4PF last March.
