Madonna’s eldest son, Rocco, was arrested for possession of marijuana in London, U.K. According to TMZ, the 16-year-old was arrested on Sept. 28 after neighbours reported his suspected drug use to the police.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said, “He was dealt with by way of Triage, which uses multiple strands to engage and educate young people in order to prevent re-offending.”
