Rick Ross was arrested Wednesday afternoon in Fayette County, Georgia, after a police officer “identified marijuana in his vehicle” at a traffic stop, according to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies stopped Ross’ Bentley because of a possible a window tint violation and were talking to him when an officer allegedly smelled marijuana coming from the car.
Sheriff Barry H. Babb said Ross gave consent to search the vehicle, and a deputy found marijuana.
Ross, whose real name is William Leonard Roberts II, is being booked into the Fayette County jail.
The Sheriff’s Office added that Ross was being “very cooperative” and gave officers no trouble at all. Prior to becoming one of the scene’s biggest rappers, Ross worked as a correctional officer in Florida.
Ross’ representatives have not responded to a request for comment.
The rapper was arrested in June 2014 in North Carolina after failing to appear at a hearing for a previous marijuana charge. Ross was taken into custody after performing at the SuperJam Music Festival in Greensboro and later released on a $1,000 bail.
