Warren G has been arrested on a drug charge after police pulled over the car he was riding in.

Police say the 35-year-old rapper was arrested early Sunday after being pulled over for a red light violation. Officer Karen Smith says marijuana was found in the vehicle.

The rapper's real name is Warren Griffin III. Both he and the driver were booked on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance.

They each posted $20,000 bail and were released. A phone message left for Griffin's agent, Al Hassas, was not immediately returned Sunday.
