Rapper Rick Ross was arrested last night (June 27) in Greenboro, N.C., following his performance at the 2014 SuperJam at the Greensboro Coliseum. The arrest stemmed from a year-old warrant for another North Carolina arrest related to marijuana possession; Ross reportedly failed to appear in court for that violation in 2013. 

TMZ reports that Ross cooperated with local police, posted bail and has now been released.

Rick Ross Arrested on Misdemeanor Marijuana Possession Charge

Ross is no stranger to the courts system, having previously been arrested on multiple infractions in multiple states, including a Miami arrest for guns and marijuana in 2008 and a 2011 marijuana possession bust in Shreveport, L.A.; he was sued in civil court for assault and battery in Houston in 2008 and for copyright infringement in 2010 and 2011 in California and Memphis, respectively.

Ross's sixth and latest album, "Mastermind," was released in March and hit No. 1, selling 179,000 copies and giving the rapper his fifth chart-topping LP in its first week.
