Southern rapper Lil' Boosie (born Torrance Hatch) has been placed behind bars after being arrested for possession of drugs, weapons and resisting an officer in Louisiana.
According to Louisiana's The Advocate, the "Wipe Me Down" rapper approached deputies in his Dodge Challenger while on the road in East Baton Rouge Parish around 4 p.m. on Wednesday (October 22). Claiming there was a scent of marijuana coming from the vehicle, authorities reportedly approached Boosie who, in turn, refused to step out of his car and then proceeded to drive away.
Stopping him from escaping, Boosie was then arrested by deputies and placed into Parish Prison on counts of marijuana possession, possession of a firearm with a controlled dangerous substance and attempting to run from law enforcement.
The rapper has begun to make a name for himself within hip-hop due to his collaborations with Southern artists including the late Pimp C and Webbie.
Boosie's reps were unavailable for comment at press time.
Information on the rapper's trial date has yet to be released.
