(CBS/AP) HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - A July 19 court date has been set for Antoine Dodson to answer a marijuana possession charge in Huntsville.

The YouTube star appeared briefly in court on Monday, telling reporters he didn't deserve to be there and has never before been in trouble.

Dodson spoke out on Twitter after the arrest, saying, "So just got out of jail off a weak charge...Got pulled over in my Benz and they got me...I never been in jail except that time in grade school.

Huntsville police say Dodson was charged with marijuana possession after an officer pulled him over for a traffic violation on Saturday.

Besides the drug count, he was charged with speeding, violating the state's mandatory insurance law and two counts of failing to appear in court on an old traffic ticket.

Dodson made a name for himself last year with his videotaped "hide your kids, hide your wife" rant against someone who climbed into his sister's bedroom.
