Ty Dolla $ign was reportedly indicted on felony cocaine possession last month. According to Rolling Stone, the multi-talented musician faces charges of felony cocaine possession, felony possession of Schedule I controlled substance and a misdemeanor for marijuana possession. If convicted, Griffin faces up to 15 years in prison.
The Los Angeles-based artist and his entourage were pulled over in September after the authorities smelled marijuana coming from their vehicle. Consequently, police conducted a search and Ty$ was the only passenger arrested.
Ty$’s lawyer, Drew Findling, spoke to Channel Action 2 News following the arrest.
“He had no drugs on his person at all,” Findling said. “Apparently there was a small amount of some drug found in the car, and they let five people walk away. And they let the international superstar go into custody.”
Ty$ was released after posting a $6,000 bond.
The grand jury made its decision to indict Ty$ on November 30. However, they chose not to slap with him with two additional misdemeanor charges for possession of drug-related objects.
