UPDATE: Madonna has released a statement regarding the news of her 16-year-old son, Rocco Ritchie, getting arrested in September for weed possession. Calling the incident a "family matter," the singer tells Associated Press (via ABC News), "I love my son very much. I will do whatever I can to give him the support that he needs, and I ask that you respect our privacy at this time."
It looks like Rocco Ritchie ran into some trouble recently, but managed to keep it under wraps for nearly two months.
E! News confirms that Madonna's 16-year-old son was arrested in September for possession of weed following a stop and search by officers from Camden borough. The Metropolitan Police tell us Ritchie was taken to a north London police station, and was subsequently bailed and dealt with by Camden borough's Youth Offending Team.
Authorities add that Ritchie was dealt with by way of Triage, which uses multiple strands to engage and educate young people in order to prevent re-offending.
