Rapper Yung Berg Arrested in NYC on Weapon and Drug Charges

22-year old rapper Yung Berg (who previously went by the name Ice Berg, and whose very ungangsta real name is Christian Ward) was arrested in New York City over the weekend and charged with criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of marijuana and menacing.

After a limo driver had a dispute with Berg and four of his buddies, he reported a complaint to the police. When police investigated, they found Berg and slapped him and his friends with the charges.  It is unknown at this time if he has hired a New York City drug crimes lawyer for defense.

Yung Berg’s album “Look What You Made Me Do” hits shelves tomorrow, so these charges will probably do nothing but improve sales.

Barenaked Ladies singer Steven Page was arrested on July 11th for cocaine possession.  Cops saw a suspicious vehicle outside an apartment in New York City, and while they investigated observed a man and a woman inside an apartment with a powder substance and an “unknown white capsule”.  A field test came back positive as cocaine.

Page, and the woman Stephanie Ford, were charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, while Ford was also charged with possession of pot.

Both were released on a $10,000 bail.

The band has since pulled out of playing at the Disney Music Block Party, while their manager has said through the band’s website that the “members of the band completely support Steven Page, but we don’t want to put Disney in an awkward position before issues involving Steven’s arrest are resolved.”
