Police have informed the Chicago Tribune, that rapper Juice Wrld that the Law-enforcement officials were in the process of confiscating guns and drugs from Juice Wrld’s flight at Chicago’s Midway Airport. During the procedure the rapper suffered convulsions and went into cardiac arrest early Sunday. He was briefly revived but died at a local hospital.
According to the report, officers and agents got word that guns and drugs were on his private jet and they awaited his arrival in Chicago. As they were searching the luggage, the rapper (real name: Jarad Higgins) “began convulsing [and] going into a seizure,” police sources told the paper. He briefly woke up but was “incoherent” after an agent administered two doses of the anti-overdose medication Narcan, but he was pronounced dead at 3:14 a.m. local time at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Ill. Police asked the rapper’s girlfriend, who was on the flight, whether he had any medical conditions, and replied that he “takes Percocet and has a drug problem.” An autopsy is scheduled for today.
The search turned up 41 “vacuum-sealed” bags of marijuana, six bottles of prescription codeine cough syrup, two 9 mm pistols, a .40-caliber pistol, a high-capacity ammunition magazine and metal-piercing bullets, police told the paper, although no drug charges have been filed. The two guards with Higgins were charged with illegally possessing the guns and ammunition.
