Peter told MTV ” This is Cory’s first offense, but sometimes they like to make an example out of rappers and people with any kind of celebrity to them.  I spoke to the arresting officer, and so far, what I’m hearing from him is that they got a phone call at the station saying they should ‘look out’.  They didn’t know he was Cory Gunz.  They just saw a bunch of kids following him around.

Cory’s mentor, Nick Cannon tweeted of his arrest saying “Great dude, just a little bad luck.  Cory Gunz is holding strong and will be out shortly.  Family is here if and when anything is needed”.

Cory had a chance to release a small statement on the matter and said ” This was a big mistake on my part. I didn’t have any intentions of harming anyone or committing a criminal activity. So many young people look up to me and I need to fight though this.”

Last word, Cory was being held in Central Booking in the Bronx and unfortunately, although he has no prior criminal record, New York law mandates a prison sentence of three and a half years for illegal possession.
