Frank Ocean Responds to New Year’s Eve Arrest: “Hi Guys, I Smoke Pot”
Frank Ocean‘s 2012 ended on a high note … literally. According to TMZ, the R&B singer was pulled over in California on New Year’s Eve for speeding, and officers found some weed in his pocket.
Law enforcement tells TMZ, Ocean was pulled over in Mono County, CA for going roughly 90 in a 65 — and when officers approached his black BMW, they smelled the odor of marijuana emanating from his vehicle. According to law enforcement, cops searched Ocean and found a small bag of pot on his person.
In addition to his citation for marijuana possession, Frank was also cited for driving on a suspended license and having tinted windows on his car.
Frank wasn’t arrested, and was released on the spot, but his passenger had to drive him home because cops confiscated his license. And for the record, there was no “suspicious” or “sexual behavior” as some sites reported.
Frank addressed the situation a few days later on his Twitter page:
hi guys, i smoke pot. ok guys, bye.
