The aspiring star, who has been the only family member regularly updating the media on his famous relative's condition as she fights for life in a Georgia hospital, was picked up by police officers on Monday (23Mar14) after reportedly lying about his identity and failing to produce a driving license during a traffic stop.

The 27 year old told cops his name was Jahraim Reid, but he later confessed his true identity when the arresting officer discovered there was a warrant out for his arrest.

He was taken into custody for the prior warrant, driving without a license, and for giving false identification to police.

Jerod, who released a tribute song inspired by his cousin last week (ends20Mar15), has fallen out with family members over his willingness to talk to the press about Bobbi Kristina. Her father, Bobby Brown, recently urged the media to ignore his statements as they were not sanctioned by the family.

A February (15) statement from Brown's lawyer Christopher Brown read: "Jerod Brown aka Jerod Carter aka YF Kennedy, continues to makes statements and appear on television, however, he has not had any communication with Bobby Brown... He must be disregarded.

"Please do not attend any 'meet and greet' organized by Jerod Brown as he is unable to provide access to Bobbi Kristina or information on her condition. This is a criminal investigation and we do not need this side show."

Bobbi Kristina Brown has been in a medically-induced coma since her boyfriend Nick Gordon and a mutual friend found her unresponsive in the bathtub of her Atlanta-area home in January (15).
