Ja Rule Arrested but Pot Charge Dropped

Rapper Ja Rule and tapper Savion Glover were both charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession and driving without licenses in separate incidents Thursday in New York City.

The Ja Rule bust came in the wee hours of the morning, when the rapper and The Fast and the Furious actor (real name Jeffrey Atkins) was pulled over for an unsignaled lane change while driving his 2001 Mercedes-Benz in Greenwich Village, a police spokesman told the Associated Press.
