Earlier this month we learned that former Home Improvement child star Taran Noah Smith got himself busted for marijuana possession … and today, we are hearing of another drug bust. Singer Robin Thicke got himself arrested in NYC for marijuana possession when police found him chillin’ in a parked car ALLEGEDLY smokin’ a doobie. According to the report, Robin was given a very friendly arrest … so friendly, that he happily gave autographs to his arresting officers. Celebrity justice in action, y’all.
Singer Robin Thicke was arrested in Manhattan for marijuana possession, the Daily News has learned. The award-winning R&B crooner was arrested at 12:25 p.m. by patrol officers who saw him smoking a joint while sitting in a Cadillac Escalade near 3rd Ave. and E. 21st St., close to Gramercy Park. “He wasn’t driving,” a police source said. “He was sitting in the car. He was arrested and a small amount of marijuana was recovered on him.” Thicke, 34, was in the Escalade with another person, the police source said, but Thicke was the only one arrested and then charged with possession of marijuana. The singer was amiable throughout the arrest, another source said. “He was taking pictures with the cops,” the source said. “They were coming over to him and getting autographs.” It wasn’t clear where Thicke was heading, though he did provide police with a lower East Side address … Thicke’s spokesman declined to comment.
Aww … dang. Well, illegal is illegal so I guess he had to be arrested if the police officer witnessed Thicke doing an illegal act … tho how seriously can anyone take an arrest like this when we hear about how much the cops were fawning over their suspect. What’s funny for me about this story is how much it reminds me of the episode of Sex and the City when Carrie got busted for smokin’ a doobie after Jack Burger (the worst fictional TV boyfriend EVER) broke up with her on a Post-It note. I guess if Carrie can get out of getting in serious trouble by using her Post-It note as a Get Out of Jail Free card, then Robin can avoid serious punishment by using his fame. The only thing not really funny is one of these scenarios is fiction while the other is real life. Celebrity justice can be a very funny thing, I guess.
