Anwan Glover, who starred on the show “The Wire,” said he has the city’s support after being arrested in D.C. last month for allegedly carrying a gun in his car. 

In an interview with WPGC’s DJ Flexx, Glover said the incident is behind him and he has prioritized making the District safer. 

“Everything’s gonna work out man,” Glover said. “I got the city behind me, so it’s really no worries.” 

About 1 p.m. June 26, police stopped Glover and located a gun in his car, according to a police report. The incident occurred in the 2900 block of Connecticut Avenue. 

Police arrested Glover for unlawful possession of a firearm. He was released from jail Monday. 

During his stint in jail, Glover said he paid careful attention to the number of shootings throughout the city. He told Flexx he thinks the young kids in D.C. just need a hug.

“A lot of times, they think everyone is against them,” Glover said. “We’ve gotta go in these neighborhoods, man, and let them know you ain’t gotta be a gangster.” 

In addition to his shows, Glover said he wants to find ways to connect with the city’s youth in the coming weeks.

He offered his support to Jody from New Impressionz amid recent reports that the band's leader, TJ, was shot at Martini's Restaurant Martini's Restaurant & Lounge Monday night.

“It’s too many young brothers out here getting shot," he said. “Whatever you need G, we got you.”

Fans of the band circulated reports through social media.
