    Ross, better known by his dramatic alter ego, Tyra Sanchez, was allegedly caught with a small amount of weed while driving with a pal in a Chevy Impala.

    "He was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail on charges of possession of less than an ounce of marijuana. He was released the next day on $1,300 bond," the Gwinnett County public information officer tells E! News.

    According to the police report, the cops noticed the Impala had its windows tinted too dark, and after pulling the car over an officer claimed he could smell "an odor of raw marijuana" in the car and conducted a search of the vehicle. The officer also wrote in his report that there was a marijuana leaf logo on the driver's keychain in the ignition.

    Ross was charged with being in possession of less than an ounce of the funny stuff. He posted bond and was released from the detention center Wednesday.

    On a positive note, that mug shot is looking pretty fierce.
