COWETA COUNTY, Ga. — Editor's note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Antonio Allen was a former NFL player. The Antonio Allen arrested in this incident was not that player, the Coweta County Sheriff's Office confirms. The story has been modified to reflect that information. 

A popular Louisiana rapper and another man are facing multiple felony charges after a traffic stop in Newnan Monday afternoon. 

Boosie, 36, whose real name is Torrence Hatch Jr., and  Antonio Allen, 30, were arrested when a deputy found a loaded gun, marijuana and bag of cash in their car during a traffic stop.

Hatch and Allen are being held and awaiting a bond hearing. 

According to Complex, Hatch pleaded guilty to drug charges back in 2011 and was eventually released in March of 2014.
