Rick Ross Busted Again for Weed

Heavyweight rapper Rick Ross was nabbed for marijuana possession in Georgia on June 10. It's his fourth pot arrest since 2008.

Fayette Country troopers pulled over Ross' Bentley on GA-279 for an alleged window tint violation. After they smelled marijuana, a search of the vehicle yielded five joints. He was charged with misdemeanor possession of one ounce or less (punishable by a maximum year in jail and $1,000 fine) and released on bail.

Ross (nee William Roberts II) lives in the Peachtree City area, which is 30 miles southwest of Atlanta.

Here's Ross' rap sheet:

• 2008: Marijuana and gun possession in Miami, FL

• 2011: Marijuana possession in Shreveport, LA

2013: Marijuana possession in Greenboro, NC

• 2014: Arrested again in Greensboro for failing to appear in court on 2013 charge

• 2015: Marijuana possession in Fayette County, GA

Ross headlined the 4/20 concert in Denver in April. His latest album, Hood Billionaire, came out last year.
