Atlanta rapper Rich Homie Quan had a tough run-in with police this holiday weekend. New reports claim the Southern hip-hop artist found himself in handcuffs for a drug investigation.

Details have surfaced about RHQ’s surprise interaction with Georgia cops.

Law enforcement sources tell us … RHQ and his crew were stopped at a police checkpoint Saturday night en route to Club Liquids in Wadley, GA, where he and 5 guys were arrested on suspicion of possession of a stolen gun and drugs. Cops say they believe the drugs to be ecstasy and weed. Quan is in Jefferson County Jail as of Sunday afternoon, but has not been charged yet. Police there can detain someone without charging them for up to 48 hours. (TMZ)
