Three 6 Mafia rapper DJ Paul was arrested in NYC last night for possession of a weapon ... after cops say the Academy Award winner was illegally packin' a taser. 

According to reports, Paul was carrying an open beer (Corona) out of a restaurant when he passed a couple of officers.

When officers confronted Paul about the open container, he reportedly told the cops he had a taser on his person ... which are illegal to carry in NYC.  

Cops confiscated the weapon and placed Paul under arrest for open container and misdemeanor possession of a weapon. He was transported to a nearby station where he was booked and placed behind bars.

Paul is slated to face a judge this morning.

9:00 AM PT -- Paul was just arraigned. He pled "not guilty" to both charges and was released on his own recognizance. He's due back in court in December.

Tasers are illegal in NY State for civilians. Only NYPD and licensed NYS Security officers can carry one. I used to carry one when I was working, but would never even consider it the rest of the time for this exact reason.
