    From the San Francisco Chronicle...

    Method Man Arrested
    Wu-Tang Clan rapper Method Man was arrested in New York City on Thursday night for driving under the influence of marijuana.

    The 36-year-old hip-hop star, real name Clifford Smith, was stopped at the Battery Tunnel toll booths in Brooklyn at 10 pm.

    Smith was attempting to pay the tunnel toll when Officer Donald Johnston spotted his vehicle's inspection sticker had expired and upon investigation, allegedly found the rapper smoking a joint.

    Police allegedly discovered 28 grams of marijuana in Smith's Lincoln Navigator vehicle, the New York Daily News reports.

    The Grammy winner was arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal Court Friday and charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, criminal possession of marijuana, operating a motor vehicle under the influence and driving an uninspected motor vehicle.

    He knew he was in trouble when he bought $10,000 worth of frozen pizzas and twinkies.

    Clifford really needs to remember when he's got a fat bag of skunk, when he's got White Owl blunts, and he's about to go get lifted, yes he's about to go get lifted, he should really not do it in a moving Lincoln Navigator.

    28 grams of marijuana? Why that's only .35 grams short of an ounce. How about that?

    Its funny in a way how an arrest like this does nothing for his career at this point.
    It seems to me that he won't sell more records for being arrested, but he won't sell fewer either.

    Not that I'm speaking from experience, or anything, but even really baked potheads still have enough cognitive function to operate a vehicle, to an extent. That being said, it was the expired inspection sticker (and the billowing cloud of funny-smelling smoke) that likely did him in.
