On Wednesday, Detroit police say they were serving a warrant at a home next door to Nipsey's owner Clinton Majors.

While doing a search of the neighbor's home, a bag of crack cocaine was thrown over the fence into Majors' yard. Police say Nipsey was under the supervision of his family when he ingested the bag. Detroit police contacted the Michigan Humane Society's field services team for assistance.

Nipsey was later treated by the MHS veterinary team and held overnight for observation. The humane society said that Nipsey had no ill effects from swallowing the narcotics and was returned home the next day.
