Report: Desiigner released without bail; Gun charges dropped

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — A Brooklyn rapper has been released without bail on misdemeanor charges after a gun charge was dropped.

The Daily News reports (http://nydn.us/2ctLBdP ) Sidney Royel Selby III — whose stage name is Desiigner — was released Saturday after appearing in Manhattan Criminal Court on menacing and drug possession charges.

The newspaper said Desiigner's lawyer said claims about a gun were bogus and no weapon was found.

On Friday, New York City police said the "Panda" performer was pulled over Thursday night in midtown Manhattan after a road rage dispute in a tunnel connecting Manhattan and New Jersey.

Police had said another driver claimed the 19-year-old rapper waved a handgun while exiting the tunnel.

Desiigner emerged from court saying, when "you're doing right ... keeping it positive, they can't lock you down."
