Frank Ocean has been cited for marijuana possession.

The singer was stopped by police in Mono County, California on New Year’s Eve, for speeding but when officers approached his BMW, they reportedly smelled the drug and after searching the vehicle, they found a small bag of pot on him, according to gossip website TMZ.

Frank was allowed to leave the scene after being cited for possession, driving on a suspended licence, and tinted windows but his friend had to drive him home after cops confiscated his licence.

Meanwhile, Frank – who received huge critical acclaim for his debut album 'Channel Orange' last year – recently revealed he may write a book instead of producing another record.

He said: "Some people focus more on sonics. Some people focus more on story. I focus on both sonics and story, but music sometimes, just music itself, can turn into more of a maths problem.

"Storytelling is the more interesting part about making music for me, or making albums and songs and stuff. So much so that I might not make another album. I must write a novel instead. I don't know!"

When pressed further about his only record possibly being his last, he added: "It could be.

"It could be it if I flew next week and my plane crashed. It could be it if somebody walked along and shot me for my bracelet or something. It could always be it."
