Rapper LIL' BOOSIE is facing drug and weapons charges following his arrest by Louisiana police on Wednesday (22Oct08).
The Wipe Me Down star was driving in East Baton Rouge Parish on Wednesday afternoon when he was stopped by cops after they noticed the smell of marijuana wafting from his vehicle.
But when officers approached Lil' Boosie, real name Torrance Hatch, to question him about the suspected drug, he is alleged to have refused to step out of his car and driven away.
The police caught up with the MC and arrested him on counts of marijuana possession, possession of a firearm with a controlled dangerous substance, and attempting to evade law enforcement, reports Louisiana's The Advocate.
He is currently being behind bars at the local Parish Prison and is due in court at a later date.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
