Rapper Redman encountered a little legal trouble during his recent tour stop in Norway after he was arrested for smoking marijuana onstage.
The Dirrty star performed in Oslo on 26 November as part of his joint European tour with pal Method Man, but his penchant for pot landed him in trouble with cops after ignoring prior warnings from venue authorities about using the drug at the gig.

However, Redman reveals he wasn’t in custody for long – and was soon allowed on his way to continue the roadshow.

He tells BET’s 106 & Park countdown show, “I got locked up in Norway. They told me not to smoke onstage, but someone passed me something onto the stage. I got locked up after the show but I’m out!”

As WENN went to press, it was not known whether Redman had been fined for the drug violation or simply released with a warning.
