Los Angeles: As Bobbi Kristina Brown is being treated at a rehabilitation facility in Atlanta, her cousin Jerod Brown has been held on Atlanta City Jail.

Earlier this week, Jerod's car was pulled over by a cop at around 2:00 AM after the officer smelled "the distinct odour of marijuana" from his car, reported Ace Showbiz.

When asked if there were drugs present in the car, Jerod replied, "No, but we just came from the studio."

He also couldn't provide a license, claiming he did not bring it at that time. When asked for his name, Jerod misidentified himself as being 27-year-old Jahraim Wallace Reid.

The officer wrote in a report, "The name and date of birth did not appear to be valid. After approximately an hour of investigating, I determined the driver's name to be Jerod Wallace Brown-Carter. He eventually admitted his name was in fact Jerod Brown."

Police later discovered that Jerod had a warrant out for his arrest from Gwinnett County for driving without a license, giving a false name and using a wrong signal. Jerod was then taken into custody for that active warrant, false representation to police and driving without a license.

Jerod's credibility was first called into question in February after he was slammed by Bobby Brown's lawyer for posting updates on Bobbi's condition and setting up a public vigil for her.
