Rapper Taboo Faces Pea-Sized Fine for Drug Charges
Taboo, whose real name is Jaime Luis Gomez, 31, had a small amount of marijuana when he was arrested in March in the City of Industry, near Los Angeles, after a minor traffic accident, police say.
Prosecutors Thursday charged him with possession of marijuana while driving, and possession of 28.5 grams or less of marijuana, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.
If convicted, he faces only the fine and no jail term. His arraignment is set for May 25.
