The 33-year-old actor who was fired from the series ‘The Chi’ due to alleged misconduct is facing felony charges for possession of weapons and drugs following arrest.

AceShowbiz -Actor Jason Mitchell has been arrested in Mississippi on felony weapons and drug charges.

According to TMZ, the star was booked into Harrison County Jail on Wednesday, April 22, 2020, and is facing two felony charges for possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, plus two more felony charges for possession of a weapon by a felon.

Mitchell, who played Eazy-E in the movie “Straight Outta Compton“, was busted with two guns, including a Glock 19 pistol and a mini Draco AK47 semi-automatic pistol, according to records obtained by the publication.
