*Mixtape producer DJ Clue has been arrested for drug possession in New York, according to local news channel NBC 4.

He was reportedly driving through Manhattan early this morning when he was stopped by police at a traffic checkpoint. They ran a background check and discovered that he was driving on a suspended license. Also, a subsequent search allegedly turned up three pills on his person.

Clue, real name Ernesto Shaw, was taken into custody on charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance and aggravated unlicensed operator and was due to appear in court to face the counts later today.

The producer, known for his work with rappers Jay Z, Nas, DMX and Fabolous, had reportedly had his license suspended eight times before.
