Mono County Sheriff's Department said officers stopped Ocean's black BMW at about 4.30pm on US 395 in California's Eastern Sierra Nevada, for driving at more than 90mph in a 65mph zone.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Jennifer Hansen said a strong marijuana odour wafted out as a deputy approached the car and the officer found a small bag of marijuana on 25-year-old Ocean, whose legal name is Christopher Breaux.

Ocean, of Beverly Hills, was cited for marijuana possession and released.
