A bottle of codeine, among other things, landed Nipsey Hussle in jail on Wednesday night. The incident occurred when the rapper was driving home from a recording studio in Burbank, CA. Police noticed that his car was missing license plates and pulled him over to find codeine, a bottle of soda, and styrofoam cups, TMZ reports. They also discovered an outstanding warrant for driving with a suspended license, as Billboard notes, and arrested Nipsey, aka Ermias Asghedom, on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance and the outstanding warrant. He has since been released after posting $1000 bail.
