Zac Brown, strippers & cocaine: What we know so far about this crazy story
Country singer Zac Brown was in for one crazy night in a Palm Beach hotel room last week, says TMZ. At 2:30 a.m., police raided his suite to find strippers, cocaine and marijuana. The bust ended in four arrests, but according to TMZ, a source said that Brown — who's been married for 10 years — was only in the room for 10 minutes when the strippers arrived. Hmmm.
Of Brown's companions, one man was arrested for marijuana possession and two women were arrested for possessing cocaine. Brown also had a prescription pill bottle with mismatched pills, which he later provided prescriptions for. He was not arrested, although his name remains on an event report documenting the incident. Moreover, the Palm Beach Police Department has consistently denied his involvement in the situation.
According to Fox News, the police who arrived on the scene were so excited to see Brown that they even asked for his autograph. The strippers, on the other hand, didn't know that they were working for a famous client. TMZ reports that one of the police officers mocked a stripper for not knowing who Brown was — let alone that he had a wife and kids. TMZ's sources also state that it was the police who offered to omit Brown's name from the police record.
