In a real shocker, How High actor and famed Wu-Tang Clan MC Method Man was arrested Thursday (May 17) after police discovered about 28 grams of marijuana in his automobile, NYPost.com reports. Smith was pulled over at a toll both at the entry of the Battery Tunnel, while en route from Brooklyn to Manhattan, for sporting expired tabs on his vehicle, a green 2005 Lincoln. Upon rolling down his window, authorities reported a strong scent of marijuana and visible drug paraphernalia, including two blunts.
During a search, Smith reportedly admitted to stashing further drugs under the driver’s seat of the automobile. The rapper was then arrested and charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, criminal possession of marijuana, operating a motor vehicle under the influence, and driving an uninspected motor vehicle. Although Smith was released on his own recognizance Friday (May 18), details regarding his hire of a lawyer or a forthcoming court date have yet to be announced.
