Primary Wave 10th Annual Pre-Grammy Party

Chicago rapper Twista was arrested for marijuana possession on Thursday night, ultimately affecting his scheduled Indiana concert.

The 42-year-old was on his way to perform at a venue in Valparaiso, Indiana when he was pulled over. TMZ reports: “We’re told the Rolls Royce Phantom in which he was riding was pulled over at 10:15 PM, before the concert. Twista, 2 other passengers and the driver waited outside the car as police searched the vehicle and found the weed.

Officials say Twista originally got pulled over because the vehicle he was in was apparently driving too close to a truck. After police detected the smell of weed from the car, Twista and his 4 passengers were immediately arrested.

Twista was reportedly held until 4 in the morning on Friday. Due to the relatively minor nature of the crime, he was released on a $500 bail.
