This isn’t the first time Wes has seen the inside of a jail cell. KWTX arrest archives show that in 2020 he was accused of running the mother of his kids off the road while the children were still in the car. Wes took to his Instagram on Tuesday claiming he was “innocent” (with a devil horn emoji) and that his phone had been confiscated by police so to “Hit my DM 12 got my chirp.” He was held on $30,000 bond which has since been posted.
As of press time, Gucci Mane / 1017 Records have yet to comment.
