Lanez, 27, was charged with carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle, the LAPD says, and was booked into the Hollywood Jail.

Jail records show that Lanez posted his $35,000 bail and was released at 10:05 a.m. He is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 13.

The “Say It” singer was spotted on Megan Thee Stallion’s Instagram Live over the weekend as the two musicians were hanging out with Kylie Jenner, as captured by a fan account.

TMZ reported on Monday that Megan was in the car with Lanez at the time of his arrest, after the get together. The outlet also reported that the “Savage” singer, 25, sustained an injury to her foot that night and was later treated at a hospital. A rep for Megan did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Jenner, 22, previously joined the rapper’s viral Instagram Live show, Quarantine Radio, in April as a viewer.

Lanez told Vulture in May that he’s had “multiple offers” to turn the popular radio show into a TV series.

“I’m definitely looking forward to anything that feels right. I don’t ever wanna force anything I’m not willing to do, looking at the opportunity over the taste,” the “LUV” singer said.

“The taste is always more important than the opportunity,” he added. “I would never try to remake exactly what Quarantine Radio was on television cause I don’t think it would have the same effect, but I would like to do something.”

On Friday, the musician shared a teaser of his latest music video, which he edited and directed, on Instagram.

“Me and my lil bro @vvs_ken CHECKED THE F— IN ON THIS🔥🔥🔥🍾☔️🍾😈🔥🔥🔥🍾☔️🍾🔥” he wrote in the caption. “‘392’- VIDEO OUT NOW (edited and co directed by me !!! Of course ! Lmao !!!!! WATXH NOW ..
