The Atlanta police Officer Stephanie Brown is telling news outlets that seven people were held late in the afternoon, when the police smelled marijuana from a car in the vicinity of the center of Atlanta.

A search of the vehicle yielded marijuana and cocaine. The 33-year-old born Tyrone William Griffin Jr. was arrested, but the other six were released without charges. It is unclear why Griffin was the only one arrested.

According to Fulton County jail records, Griffin is charged with possession of cocaine and less than 1 gram of marijuana, as obstruction.

The musician was scheduled to perform in Atlanta on Wednesday as part of the G-Eazy The Endless Summer Tour. Reports no response from him, or representation.
