According to Matt Zapotosky of The Washington Post, Delonte was driving a three-wheeled motorcycle when he cut off the Prince George’s County cop.

The officer pulled him over, and West told the officer that that he was carrying a handgun in his waistband.

That prompted the officer to call for back up, and investigators found that West was actually carrying three guns — a Beretta 9mm in his waistband, a Ruger .357 strapped to his leg and a shotgun in a guitar case slung over his back, said Maj. Andy Ellis, a spokesman for the Prince George’s County Police Department.

As of now, it is still unclear where West was going or why in the world he was armed.
