The "Panda" rapper was just released after his arraignment in NYC Saturday morning. No surprise ... he didn't talk much about the charges on the way out, but he sure insinuated the case against him won't stick, claiming he did right and that's why he was just released on his own recognizance.
TMZ broke the story ... cops allegedly found a large quantity of pills on the console of the SUV in which the rapper was a passenger. Authorities got specific during the hearing ... 57 green pills, 78 white pills and 139 round white pills. There were also a few duffle bags, allegedly containing controlled substances.
Cops have not yet finalized testing on the pills ... but Desiigner's attorney said they're all anabolic steroids prescribed to the driver. Our law enforcement sources say it was Oxycontin, methadone and steroids.
As we reported, the D.A. dropped the gun charges because cops didn't find a weapon, despite the other driver who claims desiigner pointed a pistol at him.
DESIIGNER Gun Charge Dropped
Desiigner just caught a big break ... the D.A. has dropped the felony gun charge for which he was arrested Thursday night, but he's not out of the woods.
Law enforcement tells TMZ, they cased the SUV in which the "Panda" rapper was a passenger, but found no gun. The arrest for felony possession of a loaded gun was based on what the driver of another car told cops, but the D.A. clearly felt that wasn't enough.
The D.A. has also dropped the charge of felony possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell.
TMZ broke the story, the passengers in the SUV and the driver of the other car were involved in a road rage incident, and when cops tracked down the SUV they said they found numerous pills on the console. We're told the drugs were Oxycontin, methadone and steroids.
Desiigner is being arraigned Saturday A.M. in an NYC court. He still faces charges of felony possession of a controlled substance and menacing. It's unclear why the menacing charge is still on the table since it was based on him waiving a gun at the other driver.
