His problems started when a cop stopped the actor's GMC Yukon on Interstate-10.
A search of the SUV uncovered two pounds of weed packaged for distribution, and even worse, 1,300 dosages of MDMA. .
Mitchell, who played Eazy-E in the movie, was also busted with two guns, including a Glock 19 pistol and a mini Draco AK47 semi-automatic pistol, according to records obtained by the publication.

Mitchell has denied any wrongdoing and blamed misunderstandings for both incidents.
