Craig Robinson Busted For Drug Possession
Craig Robinson, the comedic actor who recently starred in Seth Rogen’s This is the End, was arrested for drug possession in the Bahamas on Thursday.
While trying to board a plane out of the country, Robinson was found to have a gram of marijuana and 18 ecstasy pills on his person, reported TMZ. Later that day, Robinson had to stand before a magistrate to face his charges. He pled guilty to both counts of drug possession.
The magistrate, after hearing testimony from Robinson that he’d carried the drugs with him from the U.S. not knowing they were illegal in the Bahamas, ordered the actor to pay a $1,000 fine and to immediately exit the country. Robinson ultimately got off easy, as he could have been sentenced to four years in prison for his crimes.
Robinson was busted back in 2008 while he was still playing Darryl on The Office for possession of MDMA and meth. Upon completing a drug diversion program, Robinson managed to get the charges dropped.
Robinson was in the Bahamas for a comedy show held at the Atlantis hotel. Saturday Night Live’s Jay Pharoah will be performing at the Atlantis Theatre October 18-19.
