Two security guards with rapper Juice Wrld at the time of his sudden death Sunday were arrested on gun charges, police said.
The 21-year-old rhymester — whose birth name was Jarad Anthony Higgins — suffered a medical emergency and was seen “basically convulsing” at a private hangar at Chicago’s Midway International Airport, Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told The Post.
He was with a group of about 10 to 12 people at the time, including his entourage, aircraft staff and the security guards — who were found with weapons on them, Guglielmi said.
They had a conceal and carry permit valid in the state of Illinois, but it didn’t allow them to bring the weapons into an airport.
They were arrested and charged with misdemeanor gun violations, Guglielmi said. Their names and exact charges weren’t immediately released, pending an approval of the charges from the state’s attorney.
No other contraband was found on any other member of the group, Guglielmi said.
All members of the group were “very cooperative,” including the pair of security guards that got nabbed, he added.
Footage from inside the private jet Higgins and his crew were flying in from Los Angeles shows him clowning around with friends and fully alert.
Shortly after landing, the “All Girls Are the Same” rapper experienced cardiac arrest and was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead around 3:15 a.m., according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford.
He was bleeding from the mouth when paramedics responded, sources told TMZ.
An autopsy by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office will take place Monday. Police said there were no signs of foul play.
The Chicago-born musician was named top new artist at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards in May. He launched his career on Soundcloud, before being signed to a major label and releasing his first studio album, “Goodbye & Good Riddance,” in 2018.
His second album, “Death Race for Love,” debuted on top of the Billboard charts this year.
