Rihanna Tour Bus Caught With Cannabis Near Canada
Reefer maniac and pop-R&B sensation Rihanna is now among the hallowed ranks of musical celebrities with tours derailed by drug-sniffing dogs.
TMZ reports that ten of the caravan's buses were stopped on the border between Michigan and Canada and that when officers smelled weed, the routine stop evolved into a bus-by-bus search with pups searching for pot.
Which they found.
Was any of Chris Brown's Valentine's Day bouquet on Rihanna's bus?
TMZ reported that -- much to everyone's surprise (County Grind included) -- police found only a little bud on one member of the tour crew.
A total of 10 buses were stopped at the Ambassador Bridge, which separates Windsor, Canada and Detroit. Inspectors smelled marijuana on one of the buses and initiated a secondary, bus-to-bus search.
Inspectors then brought drug-sniffing dogs on board, and one of them made a beeline for a passenger and authorities found he was in possession of pot. We're told he was cited with a civil penalty.
The other good news? Rihanna wasn't on any of the buses.
