    Rapper Juelz Santana has been indicted on weapons charges after authorities say he tried to bring a gun on a plane at Newark Liberty International Airport.

    Federal prosecutors say the two-count indictment made public Wednesday charges Santana with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and carrying a weapon on an aircraft.

    Santana initially faced both state and federal charges, but the state charges were dismissed after Essex County prosecutors said they would defer to federal authorities.

    Santana had pleaded not guilty to state charges. His lawyer was not immediately available to comment Wednesday.
