May 19 – New York police say Method Man was arrested recently after the rapper allegedly was found carrying 28 grams of pot.

The New York Post reported Saturday that after a toll-booth officer stopped Method Man's car Thursday night, he arrested the Grammy Award-winning rapper without incident.

Officer Donald Johnston said when he stopped Method Man's car inside the Battery Tunnel for an expired inspection sticker, he was immediately greeted by the smell of marijuana. The criminal complaint said Johnston then noticed two cigars filled with pot and Method Man confessed to having more marijuana inside the car.

The Post said the rapper was arraigned Friday in Brooklyn Criminal Court and then was released on his own recognizance.
