Baby aka Birdman spoke to MTV News about his recent arrest. He says: "We got arrested for a misdemeanor amount of marijuana... The police just found something minor in a garbage can the dog sniffed. We all got out on bond."
He insists that the guns the police found were all legally owned by his security personnel, who were travelling with him.
"The guns we had were good. I do carry a gun and I am licensed. Tennessee is one of the states I can tote in. We know the guidelines."
This is what he said about Brittany Williams, who many reports, including us, stated was his wife:
"I'm not married... plus that girl was 18! I don't get down like that!"
Williams and his entourage are due in court in March of next year, but he says, "Hopefully all the charges will be dropped by then, and we won't have to go to court."
