[artist id="1000"]Nas[/artist] was busted on a DUI rap in early September and later released, according to information that recently surfaced online.

The rapper and his brother, nicknamed "Jungle," were both arrested on September 10 after a routine safety check in Georgia when police smelled marijuana inside the rapper's Cadillac Escalade truck.

According to the police report obtained by MTV News, Nas was pulled over near the I-75 exit ramp in Stockbridge, Georgia, at aproximately 2:30 p.m. Police were conducting license checks when officers approached Nas' vehicle. The odor of marijuana coming from Nas' car led police to ask the rapper to exit his car.

Uniformed officers then asked Nas to participate in four separate sobriety tests. The report characterized Nas as having "droopy" eyes and being unable to fully complete several tasks, including standing on one leg.

The arresting officer described Nas at the time as having "redding of the conjunctiva in both eyes, rebound dilation in both eyes, a green tongue with raised taste buds, and his pulse was raised to 116 beats per minute."

The rapper was taken to the nearby Henry County police station, where he was charged with one count of driving under the influence and released. Information in the report states that Nas admitted to smoking marijuana two hours prior to being pulled over. His brother, whose real name is Jabari Jones, was also arrested and police seized one plastic bag of marijuana belonging to him.

Nas is scheduled to appear in court to answer to the charges at a future date.

He's also embroiled in a legal struggle with his estranged wife, R&B singer Kelis. The two are in the midst of a divorce and custody battle over their son. Kelis was granted temporary spousal and child support while the pair continue to resolve the matter in court.
