According to the Associated Press, the rapper who real name is Clifford Harris Jr., was booked at the West Hollywood sheriff’s station with his wife and bail was set at $10,000. The arrests for possession of a controlled substance occurred on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood during a traffic stop.
In March of this year, the rapper was released from a half way house after serving part of a 1-year sentence in an Arkansas prison for federal weapons violations. He was charged with two felonies after allegedly trying to purchase guns in 2007.
He was placed on three years probation upon his release earlier this year, and he may face a federal probation violation if this arrest violates the conditions of his probation.
