Riff Raff Arrested for Drug Possession

Rapper busted in North Carolina.

Published August 13, 2013

Riff Raff was arrested in North Carolina for drug possession early Sunday (Aug. 11), reports TMZ. Police approached the Houston native — born Jody Christian — over his bizarre behavior, only to find incriminating evidence inside his vehicle.

He reportedly stopped and started talking to random pedestrians at around 2:30 a.m. Cops were tipped off by the act and approached Riff Raff and noticed an open container of alcohol in his car. A more extensive search uncovered weed, a "powerful" narcotic, and drug paraphernalia. 

Authorities say the former MTV reality star was "not aggressive and polite," as he was handcuffed and put in the backseat of a squad car, all of which was captured on camera. 

Riff Raff, 27, and his two passengers were carted off to jail then booked and released without bail.
