Rapper Waka Flocka Flame is reportedly facing an investigation by probation officials after he was featured in an Instagram.com photo brandishing a gun.

The No Hands hitmaker, whose probation from a previous conviction bans him from being in possession of weapons, posed alongside his wife, Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta reality Tv star Tammy Rivera, in the shot, in which he can be seen pointing a firearm at the camera.

The snap, which Rivera uploaded on Wednesday (03Sep14), has gone viral and it has since caught the attention of authorities, who have allegedly contacted Waka Flocka Flame's attorney over the careless picture.

The rapper has yet to comment on the reports.
