42Dugg was arrested after he failed to appear in court to complete a six-month prison sentence.

Federal agents apprehended 42 Dugg, an American rapper, after he failed to submit to authorities to serve his six-month prison sentence.

The 27-year-old rapper failed to report to a federal prison camp in West Virginia last month to serve his term for illegally having a pistol, according to the Detroit News. He is now facing an absconding charge and could be sentenced to up to five years in prison in connection with an incident in which he reportedly fired a weapon inside an Atlanta gun range.

Dugg was arrested in Detroit on Wednesday, May 5, after arriving on a private flight from Memphis.

“They were there to greet him when he got off the plane,” claimed the rapper’s lawyer, Steve Scharg.

Surveillance video from the gun range showed Dugg and two others holding, loading, and firing a 9 mm Glock weapon. He is not allowed to own firearms because he was previously convicted of carjacking and criminal firearms possession.

He was additionally charged with felony firearm possession in March 2020. During the COVID-19 pandemic, his lawyer was succeeded in keeping the rapper out of jail, and he was instead sentenced to three years of probation. After testing positive for specific narcotics, court officials threatened to remove his probation, so he filed an appeal.

In February, his probation was overturned, and he was sentenced to six months in prison and two years of probation.
