The situation around Rapper Juelz Santana’s arrest for having a gun at Newark Airport in New Jersey have gotten substantially worse.

Santana was allegedly caught with a weapon over the weekend at the airport and ran from the scene. He was eventually taken into custody Monday morning.

It has also now been revealed that he is facing drug charges because he allegedly had oxycodone on him at the time he fled the scene.

TMZ reported the following:

Juelz Santana’s gun and drug possession charges just became more clear — he allegedly had oxycodone on him during the airport bust … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us Juelz had eight oxycodone pills in his travel bag when he was arrested for unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a controlled dangerous substance at Newark International Airport last week.

Well, looks like the whole running-from-the-scene-of-the-alleged-crime makes a hell of a lot more sense right now. Having a loaded gun in an airport is really stupid and really dumb. Having a loaded gun and drugs is even dumber.

It made no sense to me why he ran, but it sure does now. I can’t imagine how nervous he got knowing that the situation and his alleged crimes.

My guess is that Santana is going to be in some serious trouble if these charges turn out to be true.
