Boosie Badazz was taken into custody by federal agents Wednesday morning (June 14) in San Diego, moments after he appeared in court on a separate weapons case.

The feds pounced once the rapper left a courtroom where his local gun case was dismissed by the San Diego County district attorney’s office, TMZ reported.

It was unclear why he was arrested by the feds.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California told Urban Hollywood 411 they would not be releasing any details on the case until Thursday (June 15).

The rapper posted an apology to his family on Twitter at 2:44 p.m. PT.

“I wanna take this time to apologize to my kids, I’m sorry and I love y’all forever,” he tweeted.

The Baton Rouge, Louisiana native — born Torrence Hatch Jr. — was originally arrested in May while in San Diego to shoot a music video.

NBC San Diego reported that Boosie, 40, was taken into custody during a traffic stop when officers found two loaded handguns.

The station said he pleaded not guilty to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Prosecutors told reporters Boosie had prior felony convictions in Louisiana on drug charges.

Days after his May arrest, the music star sat down for an interview with The Breakfast Club and said a San Diego Diego police officer saved his life during the arrest when his blood sugar level plunged dangerously low.

“I want to give a shout-out to San Diego police, bruh, I was having a sugar attack when I got arrested,” Boosie said on the June 2 episode via Hip Hop DX. “Yeah, bro, bad one. When I was leaving the video shoot, my sugar was dropping. I can’t take insulin once it’s dropping I gotta eat or get some sugar.”

Boosie said his medical crisis could have been fatal.

“My s–t was dropping so bad I almost died,” he recalled. “They had a white San Diego police [officer] and I told him… He said, ‘I was a paramedic.’ I told him, ‘Go in my car and get my sugar s–t,’ because he was a paramedic before. And dude saved me. Ran in my sack and squirted the s–t in my mouth.”
