Controversial reggae star BUJU BANTON was arrested after attempting to buy drugs from an undercover police officer, it has been revealed.
The Grammy-nominated Jamaican star, real name Mark Anthony Myrie, was taken into custody in Miami, Florida on Thursday (10Dec09) after he was caught with more than five kilograms (11 pounds) of cocaine.
He was charged with conspiracy to possess, with intent to distribute and faces up to 20 years behind bars if convicted.
Court documents state two others were also arrested, after contacting a police informant to enquire about a deal, reports the Associated Press.
Banton is alleged to have negotiated the deal and Drug Enforcement Administration agents claim the star was spotted inspecting the drugs offered by the undercover cop.
