Lil Tjay Arrested For Gun Charge Again

Lil Tjay has been arrested again, for unlawful possession of a weapon/firearm without a permit. This is now the rapper’s third gun charge he has received since the start of the year.

Tjay’s stay behind bars was short and he was quickly released.

According to an arrest document obtained by XXL from the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office, Lil Tjay (born Tione Merritt) was arrested in Bergen County, N.J., on Friday (May 5) for unlawful possession of a weapon/firearm without a permit. The Bronx, N.Y. rapper was booked and released on his own recognizance. Details of his arrest weren’t available.

XXL has reached out to the Bergen County Police Department and Tjay’s rep for comment.

This marks the third time this year that Tjay has been arrested on weapon possession charges. On Jan. 23, 2023, the “In My Head” rapper was arrested in Bronx, N.Y., for felony criminal possession of a firearm and was later released.

Nearly two weeks prior, on Jan. 16, 2023, Tjay was arrested while at an Ice Spice video shoot after the NYPD stopped his SUV in Bronx, N.Y.

According to police Tjay, along with four other individuals were pulled over and upon further inspection of the vehicle, discovered four firearms. All five men were arrested and charged with unlawful weapon possession.
