Jacquees Arrested, Accused of Driving 116 MPH Through Atlanta
Musician Jacquees has been arrested after officers say he was speeding through Atlanta and found with a small amount of marijuana, police said.
An officer running radar clocked his 2007 Bentley Continental at 116 mphon Interstate 85 around 3 a.m. Thursday, Atlanta police said in a brief statement.
When the officer pulled over the Bentley, it continued rolling a short distance and the officer saw an item being thrown out a window, police said in the statement.
"Once the vehicle stopped, the officer approached the driver who advised him that he had thrown marijuana from the vehicle," police said.
About 3 grams of marijuana was found during the traffic stop, police said. Jacquees’ real name is Rodriquez Broadnax.
He was charged with speeding, reckless driving, littering and possession of a controlled substance. A passenger in the car was also charged with possession of a controlled substance.
It wasn’t known whether the artist has an attorney who could be reached for comment. A representative of his label, Cash Money Records, didn’t immediately reply to messages left Thursday.
