R&B artist Michael Eugene Archer, better known as D’Angelo, was charged with drunken driving and drug possession after a traffic stop, police said.
Police in suburban Richmond arrested the Grammy Award-winning singer early Sunday. A subsequent search turned up “what we believe to be cocaine and marijuana,” said Chesterfield police Capt. Karl Leonard. He said the substances will be analyzed.
Along with drunk driving, Archer, 30, a Richmond native, was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance. He is due in court next Tuesday.
Archer received a Grammy for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance in 2000 for “Untitled (How Does it Feel)” from the album “Voodoo.” That compilation also won a Grammy for Best R&B Album.
