Singer J. Holiday was arrested Thursday night (February 21) on drug possession charges after being pulled over in Maryland.

According to local news channel WMDT47, the singer (real name: Nahum Grymes) was pulled over on Route 50 in Salisbury, Maryland after two state police officers observed his vehicle "driving in tandem" with another "at a high rate of speed."

Sgt. Frank Russo explained that after being pulled over, officers recognized a strong marijuana odor coming from his car, which yielded a search of his vehicle.

The channel reports that a nominal amount of marijuana in the center console of the singer's vehicle and he was subsequently arrested.

Holiday and the other occupant in his car, George Jackson, both face drug possession charges.

The driver of the other car, Rolland Wesley, faces traffic-related charges, but is clear on the drug possession rap.
