Cam'ron Busted With Gun, Pot

Rapper pinched in NYC on weapons, drug charges

Cam'ron (a.k.a. Cameron Giles) was arrested in New York City on July 29th and charged with weapons possession, drug possession and possession of a forged fire department parking permit.

The Roc-a-Fella rapper was pulled over for a traffic violation on the West Side of Manhattan, and upon a search of his vehicle police found a .22 caliber handgun and marijuana. Cam'ron was arraigned on Tuesday, and, after pleading not guilty and posting bail, was released that day.

Cam'ron's third album (and first for Jay-Z's Roc-a-Fella), Come Home With Me, continues to be a strong seller. The record was Number Fifty-two this week, after three months of release, with sales of more than 600,000.
