Hip-hop producer Scott Storch has been arrested in Las Vegas for possession of cocaine, according to Tmz.com. Law enforcement say the arrest occurred at the Cosmopolitan Hotel on February 4, 2012.
In the report, the arresting officer says Storch tried to hide a bag of cocaine in a trash can near the hotel before cops arrived. Authorities managed to fish out the bag after receiving a tip off from hotel security - discovering it contained around 2.7 grams of the drug. Sources say the arrest went down after an employee of the Cosmopolitan called the police to complain that Storch was refusing to pay for his hotel room. After being hauled to a nearby station, the producer was released on a 5k bond. Storch - a supposed recovering drug addict - has worked with some of the biggest names in the music business including Beyonce, 50 Cent, Dr Dre , Snoop Dogg and Pink. According to Tmz.com, he blew around $30 million of his fortune after getting "hooked on drugs" back in 2006. He eventually checked into rehabilitation and has been working on his recovery ever since.
Scott was actually snapped in Los Angeles this week, casually joking to Tmz about one of his former artists Brooke Hogan, while smoking a Cuban cigar.
