Arrest Date: June 28, 1996

Details: Rider was pulled over after a California Highway Patrol officer stopped the Mercedes-Benz he was driving because it had illegally tinted front windows. They then saw a ‘cloud of marijuana smoke’ come from the vehicle, and upon searching it they found a cell phone with the serial numbers illegally scratched off. Rider had been jailed and nearly arrested just two weeks earlier following sexual assault accusations, and would go on to be arrested two more times in the next four months.
