French Montana: Bodyguard Jailed for Gun Possession After VMAs

Bodyguards have been the center of a lot of drama lately, including a few international incidents, and now a bodyguard of French Montana has been locked up.

Following the MTV VMAs this past weekend, word was that French Montana got into it with a fan who he felt got too close to him. While French came out of the incident unscathed (physically and legally…so far….), his bodyguard, Norwood Thomas, wasn’t as lucky. Cops allegedly found a firearm on him and arrested him.

Thomas was arrested for illegal possession of a firearm after police say they found an illegal .9-mm semi-automatic Ruger on him. He drew attention after leaving the line to enter a club as bouncers were checking for weapons.

His bail has been set at $20,000. He reportedly had a license to carry a weapon, but it had expired.

French Montana had a busy night at the VMAs. He was caught on camera arguing with his security, and he discussed his crew infighting during the night. He also made headlines for his support of immigrants during his speech at the award show.

Future nearly got into some nonsense himself after his bodyguard fought with some troublemakers nearby. Luckily, Future played it cool and ignored his bodyguard getting the lights beat out of him off to the side.

Hopefully, rappers will be keeping a closer eye on their bodyguards to avoid any more international incidents.
