Rae Sremmurd’s Slim Jxmmi Arrested at LAX

Slim Jxmmi appears to be in trouble with the law (again). Customs and Border Patrol arrested the rapper after discovering he had an outstanding arrest warrant. The search for his arrest transpires from Jxmmi’s warrant in Georgia. Previous arrests for possession and sale of marijuana were against him.

According to TMZ, Georgia authorities have obtained a judge to authorize extradition from L.A. to Georgia. The Rae Sremmurd member could have up to 30 years in prison, which is Georgia’s maximum sentence. Currently, he’s in an L.A. jail without any bail. After flying in from Canada, the rapper ended up in unfortunate events.

Slim Jxmmi’s lawyer, Steve Sadow, argues that the rapper’s warrant was wrongly issued due to miscommunication. He said:

“Nearly two years ago, Aaquil entered a plea to a marijuana offense in Cobb County, Georgia.”

As a result, they placed him on probation.

“In early June 2022, the mother of his child filed an untruthful complaint with the Cobb County Police Department, which led to an arrest warrant being issued.”

After explaining that Aaquil was not arrested on that warrant, he said a Cobb County Magistrate Judge held a hearing on July 20. They dismissed the warrant.

The Cobb County Probation Office was unaware of the dismissal of the arrest warrant and therefore did not withdraw the probation violation warrant.

Police arrested Slim Jxmmi on a probation violation warrant after arriving at the L.A. airport from Canada. They expect that they will withdraw the warrant in the next day or so, leading to Aaquil’s release.

Just yesterday, Rae Sremmurd made a strong comeback in the hip-hop game with their Flo Milli-assisted track, “Community Dick.” This record will be one of many on their upcoming project, “SREMM4LIFE.”

In February, Jxmmi had a misdemeanor battery charge against him. That January, Jxmmi and the mother of his child. In the end, the woman recanted her claims against him. From there, prosecutors decided they did not have “a good faith basis” to pursue the charges.
