A rep for the rapper later came forward to clarify the arrest.
"Juelz Santana was arrested this AM after being pulled over in his Bentley for talking on a cell phone while driving," Lynn K. Hobson, the Dipset member's spokesperson, told XXLMag.com. "He was then taken into custody for driving without his license. Old warrants that had not completely cleared the system were also cleared. Juelz paid a few fines and was released immediately."

Last year, Santana was arrested in New Jersey for allegedly attacking his girlfriend.
Teaneck police charged Santana, whose real name is LaRon James, with making terroristic threats and possessing a weapon. He's free on $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Municipal Court on Sept. 9. Capt. Dean Kazinci says Santana's girlfriend told police a verbal dispute became physical Tuesday. Kazinci says the rapper told officers the woman was the aggressor and she had the knife. Police say the girlfriend, whose name was not released, had minor injuries that did not require medical treatment. (Associated Press)
