Desiigner was charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree with a loaded firearm, possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell in plain view, criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree and menacing in the second degree.
The other four people were also charged with menacing with a firearm and possession of illegal substances.
