The Year in Arrests: 2010

Police spokesman Bill Goodin said Monday (March 28) that Ross, whose real name is William Roberts II, was issued a misdemeanor summons and released after Friday night's arrest.

Roberts, known for such albums as "Teflon Don" and "Deeper Than Rap," was arrested after police responded to a complaint about the smell of marijuana at the Hilton Hotel.

Upon checking, Goodin said police confiscated 1 gram of what investigators believed to be marijuana.
