American rap artiste Ty Dolla $ign and his crew were arrested over by Atlanta police on Wednesday (September 5) after officers pulled their vehicle over, searched and discovered a sizable amount of marijuana in their possession. The platinum-selling artist was then taken away in handcuffs.
An Atlanta Police Department Officer, Stephanie R. Brown who spoke with HipHopDX said, “Around 4:55 p.m. [local time] Tyrone William Griffin Jr. (Ty Dolla $ign) along with six others were stopped in the area of 810 Martin Luther King Jr. Preliminary information indicated that the smell of marijuana was coming from the vehicle they were occupying.
“Officers searched the vehicle and located marijuana and cocaine. Officers are in the process of filing charges.”
Brown continued, “At this time, it appears Griffin will be charged with possession of marijuana less than an ounce and possession of cocaine. Once the charges are finalized, he will be transported to Fulton County Jail. The other six were released without charges.”
The police spokesperson finally added saying an investigation is still ongoing and when charges are filed, it will be made public.
