Rocco was reportedly caught with marijuana after neighbors called the cops. The Sun reports that the 16-year-old was seen “tossing something away” as the police approached him in the posh neighborhood of Primrose Hill North London.

After Rocco was searched, he was arrested and taken to a police station in London. Though a police spokesperson didn’t confirm Rocco’s name, he told "Extra," "The arrest follows a stop and search by officers from Camden borough at around 17:15hrs on Wednesday, 28 September at Steeles Mews North, NW3. The youth was taken to a north London police station.”

The spokesperson added, "He was subsequently bailed and dealt with by Camden borough's Youth Offending Team. He was dealt with by way of Triage, which uses multiple strands to engage and educate young people in order to prevent re-offending.”

Beginning in 2015, Rocco was part of an ugly custody battle between Madonna and dad Guy Richie. Madonna and Guy were in court after Rocco refused to return to New York City and wanted to stay in London with his dad. The dispute was resolved shortly before Rocco’s arrest.
