G-UNIT stars Lloyd Banks and Young Buck were arrested this morning (09AUG05), after police allegedly found weapons in a van transporting the rappers.

According to Allhiphop.com, police pulled the van over for running a red light in Manhattan, New York, after performing during a stop on their Anger Management 3 tour.

Police reportedly found two firearms in the vehicle and subsequently arrested all eleven passengers.

The identities of the other nine passengers have not been released.

Despite local police concerns that violence would be directed at 50 Cent and his rap collective during the New York stop of their tour, last night's (08AUG05) show went on without any major reported problems and another performance will follow tonight.

Eminem, Mobb Deep, Olivia, Tony Yayo, MOP, D12, PROOF, Obie Trice, Stat Quo, Pitbull, LIL' JON and LIL' SCRAPPY are also featured on the tour.
