Wu-Tang man is arraigned in Brooklyn

Method Man was reportedly arrested for drug possession in New York late last week (May 17).

The rapper was pulled over by police en route from Brooklyn to Manhattan after an officer noticed an expired inspection sticker, says the New York Post.

According to the report, Method Man whose real name is Clifford Smith, was driving a 2005 Lincoln Navigator, and when he was pulled over, officer Donald Johnston smelled marijuana smoke and saw two blunts and other drug paraphernalia.

Smith then admitted he had 28 more grams of weed in the car and was arrested and taken into custody in Brooklyn.

He was released a day later on May 18.

Wu Tang Clan are currently working on their new album entitled 8 Diagrams. It is slated to be released this summer.
