Warren G, who was arrested in Hollywood over the weekend (June 8) for possession of drugs, has denied that the marijuana found in the car belonged to him.
The rapper, whose real name is Warren Griffin III was a passenger in a car that ran a red light in the early hours of Sunday morning after attending a party for Kanye West.
The car was stopped and police searched the vehicle, finding enough drugs to charge the driver, Ryan Butler, and the rapper with intent to sell.
After posting $20,000 bail each, the men were released some hours later.
Now G’s reps are saying he was a passenger in the vehicle and was asleep when they were pulled over, according to TMZ.com.
“They were in the Hollywood area for Kanye‘s party. He was a passenger asleep in the front seat when the car was pulled over. They charged him because he didn’t debrief. Whatever was found wasn’t his, it was in the car,” said the statement.
Warren G rose to fame in the 90s with the hit ‘Regulate’, and collaborated with fellow west coast rappers Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre.
