New York rapper Dave East was traveling with some friends early Friday morning when the driver of his SUV turned without signaling, which resulted in cops pulling the SUV over.
Cops claimed to have smelled a strong odor of weed when they approached the driver’s side. Being pulled over for not signalling seemed to be some BS to Dave, who became agitated.
Cops say they found 7 bags of weed in the SUV. Both Dave and the other passenger were arrested. The driver was not arrested. Dave got a summons for disorderly conduct and unlawful possession of marijuana.
Dave East’s attorney, Stacey Richman, tells TMZ, “I don’t perceive that this will result in a criminal conviction, because it does not appear that Dave has been charged with a crime. Under New York law, disorderly conduct and unlawful possession of marijuana are violations — not crimes.”
