Warren G Busted for Weed ~ Hollywood

7:39 PM PDT on June 8, 2008


The LA Times reports:

Rapper Warren G, whose hits include "Regulate" and a hip-hop remake of "I Shot the Sheriff," was arrested in Hollywood on Sunday on suspicion of possession of marijuana with intent to sell, police said.

Warren G, whose real name is Warren Griffin III, was riding in a car driven by Ryan Butler, 29, when they were pulled over about 1:40 a.m. on suspicion of running a red light near Hollywood Boulevard and Wilcox Avenue, said Los Angeles Police Officer Sara Faden.

Was this really a huge surprise? The only mistake is that the cops said Warren G had enough illegal marijuana pot weed that he must have planned to sell it. Anyone who knows the words of Mr. G knows he's a buyer, not a seller and a pound is not for sale, it's for personal use. The police can peep the "Indo Smoke" lyrics for proof:

Ahh, IndosmokePass me the joint so I can take a toke1 puff, 2 puff, 3 puff, 4 puff, 5 I'm feelin real highLeaning to the side in my muthafuckin rideWith the OG gangsta glideWoo!, hey now ya knowInhale, exhale with my flowBreakaway, come again like thisThe LB to the C two times to missCuz if you do, you break you get brokeMe and Mista G and the indosmoke
