Houston rapper Lil Flip should pay more attention to the speed limit.

Lil Flip, whose real name is Wesley Eric Weston, was arrested after reportedly being pulled over for speeding in Shreveport, La. During the routine traffic stop, deputies allegedly found marijuanna and an assault riffle in his possession.

It is reported that Lil Flip, 31, was driving 86 mph in a 75 mph zone in his 2010 Dodge Challenger, according to The Shreveport Times.

In 2004, Flip made headlines for himself for feuding with Atlanta rapper T.I.

Deputies found a Bushmaster AR-15 in the car, the same type of assault rifle that was in the possession of the gunman in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut.

The Houston hip-hop star along with his passenger were both arrested. Lil Flip was booked on charges of speeding, possession of a firearm in the presence of a controlled dangerous substance and third-offense possession of marijuana.

Flip recently made it known he has a license to carry the non-automatic weapon and the marijuanna deputies found was nothing more than clove cigarettes. He gave TMZ a photo of his Texas concealed handgun license – which he says is valid in 22 other states, including Louisiana.

Lil Flip was freed after posting a $35,300 bond. A court date has not been announced, but he intends to plead not guilty to the charges.
