The video of Ty Dolla $ign's arrest last year, in which police found small amounts of drugs in the vehicle he was traveling in - has been released online.

The arrest took place on Sept. 5, 2018, and details the arresting cops searching Ty's limo van after an offer walked past the vehicle and smelled marijuana.

While conducting the search, the K-9 unit dogs can be heard barking enthusiastically. Cops reportedly found 18.2 grams of marijuana, a small quantity of cocaine and thousands of dollars in cash.

"He had no drugs on his person at all," the singer's attorney Drew Findling told Channel 2 Action News at the time. "Apparently, a small amount of some drug [was] found in the car, and they let five people walk away. And they let the international superstar go into custody."

Ty, 36, was arrested on charges of possessing less than an ounce of marijuana, possession of cocaine and obstruction of a law enforcement officer. He was granted $6,000 bond for his release. He subsequently accepted a plea deal to avoid any jail time.

Grand jury documents obtained by Rolling Stone reveal that the rapper-singer born Tyrone Griffin Jr. faces charges of felony cocaine possession, felony possession of Schedule I controlled substance and a misdemeanor for marijuana possession. If convicted, Griffin could face up to 15 years in prison.

The indictment was first reported by TMZ. Chris Hopper, a spokesperson for the Office of the Fulton County District Attorney, confirmed the charges and indictment. A representative for Griffin did not immediately respond to Rolling Stone‘s request for comment.
