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.

When these clowns got an oscar that's when oscars/academy award means nothing. This was a 'social' gimmick from all the lefties in hollyweird. Now, they're making the oscars & academy proud by acting like the s*** they are.
