NEW YORK , NY - He's an up-and-coming record executive who has worked with rappers like Lil Jon and Pitbull. But Bryan Leach is making news for his arrest on a gun charge.
The RCA Music Group exec was busted for driving through New York City with a gun loaded with hollow-point bullets in his car.
He has been arraigned on weapons-possession charges -- but didn't enter a plea. Leach was pulled over early yesterday morning.
A court complaint says the weapon with the hollow-point ammo was found in a center console.
Hollow-point bullets are legal in New York.
They are known to expand on impact -- which can cause additional damage to their human targets. It's unclear at this point whether Leach has a permit to carry the weapon.
The charges he faces deal with having a loaded gun outside one's home or business, among other things.
