Rap artist Juvenile was arrested in central Florida on a warrant related to a child support case, jail officials said Saturday.

The rapper was arrested on a writ of bodily attachment child support warrant in Ocala on Friday and released on his own recognizance that evening, Marion County jail officials said.

Juvenile, whose real name is Terius Gray, was taken into custody at the Ritz Hotel in Ocala without incident, the Ocala Star-Banner reported. Once he was released, officials said he went to the Ghost House Night Club, where he performed.

The artist's debut album for Atlantic, "Reality Check," is due March 7.
