ATLANTA (AP) - Police say the musician Jacquees has been arrested after officers say he was speeding through Atlanta and found with a small amount of marijuana.
Atlanta police say he was clocked at 116 mph (187 kph) on Interstate 85 around 3 a.m. Thursday.
In a brief statement, police said about 3 grams of marijuana was found during the traffic stop. Jacquees's real name is Rodriquez Broadnax.
It wasn't known whether the artist has an attorney who could be reached for comment. A representative of his label, Cash Money Records, didn't immediately reply to messages left Thursday.
The record label says on its website that Jacquees has been inspired by artists such as Michael Jackson and The Temptations. He's collaborated with artists including rapper Rich Homie Quan and singer Chris Brown.
