During a recent interview with Craig Melvin on NBC‘s “Today” show, Grammy-winning artist Darius Rucker opened up about his arrest on drug possession charges.

Rucker said he was stopped by police in Williamson County, Tennessee, after friends asked him to “take some stuff.”

“It was funny because I was going to a friend’s house, they were moving and asked me to take some stuff,” Rucker said. “And I did and got pulled, got stopped. And the crazy thing was, they let me go.

“And it was a year later that I get a phone call that said there was a warrant for my arrest,” he continued. “So I went down. Fifty-seven years, I’ve never seen the inside of a jail cell.”

“I went down and we handled it,” he said. “My lawyers are taking care of it. It is what it is.”

Rucker was booked on two counts of simple possession/casual exchange of a controlled substance and one count of a violation of the state’s vehicle registration law. He said the charges are still pending.

Rucker’s attorney Mark Puryear told TODAY.com in February that the singer “is fully cooperating with authorities related to misdemeanor charges.”

Responding to Craig’s question on how he ended up with the substance, Rucker said, “They (his friends) were moving and couldn’t fly with it. They said, ‘Can you take this, and I said, ‘Yeah.’”
