Actor Jason Mitchell's dramatic fall from grace continues. Mitchell was arrested in Mississippi on felony weapons and drug charges on Wednesday, April 22.
According to TMZ, the 33-year-old New Orleans native was booked into Harrison County Jail, and is facing two felony charges for possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, plus two felony charges for possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.
Mitchell, who played Eazy-E in the film Straight Outta Compton, was busted with 2 guns, including a Glock 19 pistol and a mini Draco AK47 semi-automatic pistol, according to records obtained by the publication.
The news comes as Mitchell struggles to resurrect his career after he lost his lead role in season three of Lena Waithe's TV drama The Chi and he was dropped from the cast of Netflix movie Desperados after he was accused of sexual misconduct with two female co-stars.
Mitchell has denied any wrongdoing and blamed misunderstandings for both incidents.
