Power 105.1’s DJ Clue Arrested In NYC


DJ Clue was caught riding dirty. The groundbreaking mixtape DJ and Power 105.1 radio jock was arrested in NYC  morning after a routine traffic stop.

TMZ reports:

DJ Clue — one of the biggest hip hop DJs of all time — was arrested in New York City this morning … after cops say he was in possession of illegal pills. 

38-year-old Clue — who’s worked with everyone from Notorious B.I.G. to DMX and Jay-Z — was initially pulled over early Wednesday morning for a routine traffic violation … and that’s when cops discovered he was driving on a suspended license. 

Police conducted a search and reportedly discovered three pills wrapped in tin foil.

Clue was taken into custody and according to NBC4 in New York, he was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and aggravated unlicensed operator. 

Story developing …

Yeah, we’re wondering if those pills were Mollys, too. Blame Trinidad Jame$.

According to NBC, Clue, born Ernesto Show, was pushing a black Range Rover when he was pulled over near Varick Street. When they check his license they discovered it was suspended. A search turned up the pills and he was taken into custody. He is schedule to be arraigned later today.

DJ Clue can usually be heard on the radio weekdays from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET. The Queens native used to be signed to Roc-a-fella, dropping three volumes of his The Professional series between 1998 and 2006 as well as a soundtrack, Backstage: A Hard Knock Life, in 2000. Lately he’s been in a bitter rivalry with Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex, with both vying for domination of NYC’s Hip-Hop radio waves.
