Former “Love & Hip Hop” cast member Benzino can’t catch a break from law enforcement after being arrested last month and busted for drug possession this week in Atlanta.

According to reports, the bust went down yesterday (February 11) afternoon when cops noticed he did not have his seat belt on.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Benzino was stopped by Atlanta cops late Wednesday afternoon simply for failing to buckle up, but then they found a pot stash in his ride. Benzino was hauled off to jail for the belt violation, suspended license and possession of marijuana. Bail was set at $2,269.00. (TMZ)

Details of the shocking bust landed online in late January.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Benzino put his carry-on bag on the conveyor belt at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. A suspicious TSA employee dug inside and found a loaded 9 millimeter firearm with 7 rounds in the magazine. Benzino didn’t make his flight to L.A., but he did get his very own escort to the local jail. He was released on $3K bail. (TMZ)
