Juice Wrld suffered seizures as police searched his plane for narcotics and weapons
It was earlier reported that Juice Wrld died after taking pills on his plane to Chicago and more information concerning his tragic death has surfaced.
The report states that police suspected they’d find contraband in the form of “weapons and narcotics” and were awaiting the rapper’s arrival from Los Angeles. When the plane landed and the 10 occupants exited, a drug-sniffing dog was let loose in the aircraft and indicated a “positive alert” for two of the luggage bags on the plane.
Shortly afterward, Juice began convulsing and medical help was summoned. When authorities inquired if the rapper had ingested in any drugs or had any medical issues, Juice Wrld’s girlfriend reportedly notified them the rapper “takes Percocet and has a drug problem.
“Two doses of Narcan were reportedly administered to Juice. Narcan is an emergency treatment that is administered when a victim is suspected of overdosing on opioids.
The report states that Juice “woke up but was incoherent” following the Narcan treatment and that he was pronounced dead just an hour later after being transported by paramedics to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Ill.
Police and federal agents reportedly recovered 41 “vacuum-sealed” bags of marijuana, six bottles of prescription codeine cough syrup, two 9 mm pistols, a .40-caliber pistol, a high-capacity ammunition magazine and metal-piercing bullets.
Two of Juice’s security guards, later identified as Chris Long and Henry Dean, were arrested and released for gun violations.
According to authorities, Long was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm. Dean’s charges include carrying a concealed firearm at an airport and possessing a high-capacity magazine and metal-piercing bullets.
Though they both had valid conceal-and-carry permits, they were not authorized to bring their firearms into an airport. Long, who also serves as a photographer for Juice, denied that the weapon belonged to him.
