Rick Ross arrested for marijuana possession

Rapper Rick Ross is behind bars after police in Atlanta, Georgia apprehended him for possession of marijuana on Wednesday (10Jun15).

The Here I Am hitmaker was initially stopped by officers for a window tint violation on the Bentley he was driving, but when Ross opened his door, cops reportedly smelled marijuana, according to local news station WSB-TV.


Police allegedly found weed in his car, and subsequently took him to the Fayette County Jail, where he is currently being held for misdemeanor marijuana possession.


Ross was previously arrested in North Carolina last year (14), after he failed to attend a 2013 court date relating to a similar drug arrest in Greensboro.
