Ty Dolla $ign’s Pot Seized in Police Roadside Investigation

first_imgL.A. rapper/producer Ty Dolla $ign‘s (real name Tyrone Griffin) bus was pulled over by Wisconsin Police for supposed vehicle equipment violation early Wednesday morning. After smelling strong odors of marijuana coming from the bus, officers decided to conduct a roadside investigation of the bus. Dane County Sheriff’s K-9’s alerted officers to several suspect locations on the bus, which led to the seizure of 42.2 grams of marijuana, which included 18.2 grams of butane hash oil, and 28 pieces of paraphernalia.According to reports, twelve people were on the bus, with seven of those being arrested on various charges, including suspicion of drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. We have a feeling Ty wasn’t feeling very “Irie” after this early morning encounter with police.Ty’s representative claims that the rapper was not on the bus, as he was taking the easier route by plane to his Iowa gig, maintaining that it was his band and entourage on the bus, though authorities claim they arrested someone going by the name Ty Dolla $ign. Will we ever know if it was Ty on the bus? This story is shrouded in mystery (or pot smoke).[via Channel3000]last_img read more

According to Irish broadcaster RTE, part of the prime minister’s work will involve conducting phone assessments in order to free up the work load of hospital front line workers.RELATED: Doctor Left Crying After Officer Pulls Her Over For Speeding But Gives Her Face Masks Instead of a Ticket“Many of his family and friends are working in the health service.
