A young rapper was arrested last month after a gun store owner found a viral video of a man threatening to kill Donald Trump was wielding the same weapons that were stolen from him the year before.
Joe Meaux, the owner of the gun store, Meaux Guns and Ammo called local police to make them aware that the man featuring in the video was carrying the same weapons that were stolen from him on July 15, 2015. Authorities were already aware of the video due to it being a violent threat towards a presidential candidate. They were also aware of the man wielding the guns, 22 year- old Demarcus Davis.
In the video, Davis makes threats towards the Army as well as “whoever the f*** I want to,” according to Davis. He says that the person that he really wants to go to war with however is Donald Trump because “Donald Trump is trying to take food stamps away from my momma.”
Davis, a rapper who also goes by the name, “Maine Musik” was later arrested on June 3 for a traffic violation. He had a warrant out for his arrest and was taken in by police on three counts of felon in possession of a firearm, one count of illegal possession of a stolen firearm as well as a drug charge. he posted his $23,000 bail and was released.
Police connected Davis to the stolen guns after finding a photo on Facebook of Davis holding a customized Ruger 10/22 Krinker Plinker. Davis admitted that the gun was real after police showed the picture of him holding the gun. Davis’ Instagram account that has 53,000 followers also shows him posing in photographs with other guns.
Since his arrest, Davis has posted violent messages towards police as well as other anti-Donald Trump messages.
