Frank Ocean Pulled Over: Busted For Pot Possession

Since first coming on the scene in 2007, one of the most popular rappers and music artists has been Frank Ocean. Frank Ocean has been linked with Kanye West and other popular acts, but has recently had a lot of success performing on his own.

While Frank Ocean has done quite well in the music industry, it appears that he may have some legal problems ahead of him in the near future.

A few days ago, Frank Ocean was pulled over by police in Mono County, California. Initially, he was pulled over for speeding as he was driving a reported 90 miles per hour in a 65 mile per hour zone. When police officials came up to his car, they smelled marijuana and noticed some other signs of use.

When Ocean was eventually searched, marijuana was found on him. He was then cited for possession of marijuana, speeding, and having tinted windows.

The California Highway Patrol issued the following statement through CBS Local:

“On 12/31/2012 at approximately 1630 hours, Officer E. Moore, #20190, was in full CHP winter uniform, and driving a black and white departmental sedan (Class E). Officer Moore was stopped facing northbound in the center median of US-395, north of Tom’s Place monitoring traffic. Officer Moore observed a black BMW driving southbound on US-395 exceeding the 65 MPH maximum speed limit. Officer Moore accelerated his patrol vehicle in order to follow the BMW, and then observed a marked patrol unit from the Mono County Sheriff’s Department making an enforcement stop on the BMW. After the Mono County Sheriff’s Department unit stopped the BMW, Officer Moore stopped to provide any necessary assistance.”

He was released on site, but his license was not returned. His passenger had to take him home.
