MIRAMAR, Fla. - Hip-hop singer Tory Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, was arrested Wednesday afternoon in Miramar.

According to an arrest report, Miramar police pulled over Lanez's 2014 Rolls-Royce in the 1900 block of Southwest 172nd Avenue, which police said had an expired tag.

Authorities said Lanez, 24, does not have a valid driver's license in Florida or any other U.S. state.

The arresting officer noted in the arrest report that a strong odor of marijuana was emanating from Lanez's vehicle and a small amount of marijuana was found in the glove box.

The officer said he also found a concealed, loaded, unholstered gun in the center console.

Lanez was arrested on charges of illegally carrying a concealed weapon, possession of fewer than 20 grams of cannabis, failure to register a motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle without a license and operating a vehicle that is not properly insured.

Lanez has since bonded out of jail.

Lanez's album, "I told You," debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 when it was released last year. His songs "Say it" and "LUV" have both been popular on the radio.

Lanez is originally from Canada, but lives in Pembroke Pines.
