R&B star El DeBarge was arrested on Monday for possession of narcotics with intent to sell, a representative for the Los Angeles Police Department tells Rolling Stone.

The arrest, which was first reported by TMZ, went down just before 5 p.m. in Encino, California on March 19th. DeBarge was apprehended by two West Valley officers who interrupted what appeared to be a hand-to-hand narcotics transaction. The officers detained the two suspects and recovered narcotics from under the car where DeBarge was standing.

DeBarge was booked and later released on $30,000 bail. This is the third time the singer has been arrested for drug possession since 2001.
