Billboard reports that Ja Rule (Jeff Atkins) and Lil’ Wayne (Dwayne Carter) have been arrested in New York and charged with criminal possession of a weapon in separate incidents. The artists were arrested last night (July 23) shortly after Lil Wayne’s concert at the Beacon Theatre.

Officers spotted Carter, 24, and another man smoking marijuana by a tour bus near 61st Street and Columbus Avenue at about 11:30 p.m., police said. The officers took the two men into custody, finding a .40-caliber pistol. Both were charged with criminal possession of a weapon and marijuana.

Atkins, 31, was arrested about an hour earlier on West End Avenue. Police said he was in a luxury sedan that was going too fast. Officers stopped the car and arrested the occupants—Atkins, the driver and another man—and found a .40-caliber gun, police said.
