BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Baton Rouge Police have arrested local rap artist Jason "SPITTA" Taylor Friday afternoon on drug charges. He is known for his anti-BRAVE rap song on YouTube.

Taylor was arrested around 3 p.m. on charges of second offense possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Reports say Probation and Parole Agents smelled a strong odor of marijuana on Taylor's clothing while he was there for a scheduled appointment.

Agents then checked Taylor's vehicle and found a small amount of marijuana and a digital scale with marijuana residue.

According to reports, when Taylor's vehicle was searched, the parole agent found a piece of plastic baggie hanging from the ceiling and removed it. In it was reportedly 1.7g of marijuana.

The agent also found a digital scale in the center console of the vehicle with green marijuana residue on it.

Reports say Taylor admitted the marijuana was his and he put it there because he had to meet with his probation officer. Officials say Taylor had numerous text in two cell phones with people asking for drug prices and drug sales from him.

Taylor was taken from the Probation and Parole Office to the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.

Taylor is known for his YouTube rap video "[Expletive] the BRAVE team."
