Not enough evidence to prove drugs were his

Warren G will not be prosecuted for possession of drugs after marijuana was discovered in a car in which he was a passenger at the weekend in Los Angeles.

The rapper was reportedly asleep in the car when the driver, Ryan Butler, broke a red light and was pulled over by police. Upon searching the car the police discovered marijuana and arrested the pair on suspicion of intent to sell the drugs.

However, the owner of the vehicle was not in the car at the time and the rapper denied the drugs belonged to him.

Spokesperson for Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley said there was insufficient evidence to prove he knew about the drugs.

After posting $20,000 bail each, the men were released Sunday morning (June 8)

Warren G rose to fame in the 90s with the hit ‘Regulate’, and collaborated with fellow west coast rappers Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre.
