Arrested for Coke in Vegas

Hip-hop producer Scott Storch mug shot
10:38 AM PST -- Storch tried to hide a baggie of cocaine in a trash can at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Vegas before cops arrived ... this according to the police report, obtained by TMZ.

In the report, the arresting officer says cops fished out the baggie after receiving a tip from hotel security ... and discovered it contained 2.7 grams of blow.
Hip-hop producer Scott Storch -- a recovering drug addict -- was arrested in Vegas earlier this month for possession of cocaine ... TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement, Storch was arrested at a Vegas hotel around 8:30 AM on Feb. 4.

Sources tell us ... the arrest went down after an employee called police to complain that Storch wouldn't pay for his room.

When cops arrived to the scene, we're told officers discovered Storch was in possession of cocaine. Storch was hauled to a nearby police station ... where he was released on $5k bond.

Storch -- who has worked with stars like Beyoncé, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Snoop, Pink and more -- famously blew a $30 million fortune after getting hooked on drugs back in 2006. He eventually checked into rehab and has been working on his recovery ever since.  

Scott was out in L.A. this weekend acting like nothing ever happened (below) -- casually joking about one of his former artists, Brooke Hogan, while smoking a cigar.

Damnit, Scott. Just yesterday I was listening to "Make it Rain" and was saying to myself that I hoped he was off drugs. That's sad. He's SUPER talented. I was really hoping he was back on track.

no one has ever heard of the guy and don't understand with all the news to be had why TMZ continues to feature D and E level (even F) celebs or people who aren't even celebs. How about Angelina Jolie at her movie premier weeping, or someone people at least know...this site is getting a bunch of teen boys are on here showing bikini clad victoria secret models all the time..yawn

I WISH I could have the kind of money these celebrities throw away. I would show them all how being rich is done. I would be on a non-stop trip around the world, seeing all the sights, doing things most people can only dream of. The last thing I would want to do is get high. Why would you need drugs or alcohol when you have the whole world at your fingertips? That's what I don't get about some celebrities. They have the money to do anything they want, but choose to sit in a club and get wasted every night. Doesn't make sense.
