CHALMETTE, La. (AP) — The rapper Juvenile and his music producer have been arrested for misdemeanor possession of marijuana after neighbors told police they could smell pot coming from a house being used as a recording studio in Louisiana.

The 34-year-old rap star, whose real name is Terius Gray, was booked on Thursday at a jail in St. Bernard Parish southeast of New Orleans. Gray and his 42-year-old producer Leroy Edwards were released later that night on bond.

There was no phone listing for Gray and a sheriff's spokesman said he did not know whether he had an attorney.

Juvenile is best known for the song "Back That Thing Up."
