‚ÄčAlmost exactly a year to the day after his last pot bust, rapper Juvenile was arrested over the weekend for marijuana possession in Sterlington, Louisiana.

Juvenile, 35, whose given name is Terius Gray, was reportedly pulled over for speeding, reports Danielle Harling at Hip Hop DX. He was reportedly going 75 miles per hour in a 65 mph zone. Upon approaching the car, the officer detected the smell of marijuana, and when asked about the scent, Juvenile handed him a small bag of pot.
“He was very courteous and respectful as he could be,” Sterlington Police Sgt. Jacob Greer told the Associated Press. “He asked me if I recognized him, and I said ‘No. Now, if you were George Strait I’ll probably have recognized you.”
Besides being charged for possession of marijuana, Juvenile was also charged with speeding and driving with a suspended license.
He was released from jail after posting a $750 cash bond; he’s currently scheduled to appear in court on April 1.

The result of Juvenile’s last marijuana arrest — in which was was busted on February 25, 2010, after police found cannabis in his home recording studio — resulted in three months in jail, six months’ probation, and a $250 fine.
