Los Angeles, June 11 (IANS) Rapper Rick Ross was arrested by police in Fayette County, Georgia.
The “Hustlin” rapper was arrested on Wednesday.
The hip-hop star, whose real name is William Leonard Roberts II, was reportedly stopped by an officer while driving his Bentley 279 due to a window tint violation. The policeman searched the car after smelling marijuana and reportedly found five joints inside the vehicle, reports aceshowbiz.com.
