Frank Ocean pulled over, confesses on Twitter
Frank Ocean pulled over for pot possession? You'd better believe it! Post-incident, the R&B star took to Twitter to make a not-so-shocking confession.
Frank Ocean apparently has no plans to try and get out of his recent string of tickets. After being pulled over for speeding and marijuana possession, the R&B star took to Twitter to freely admit to both crimes!
On New Year's Eve, Frank Ocean was pulled over in Mono County, California, for speeding. According to TMZ, the 25-year-old was doing "roughly 90 in a 65."
When police officers approached his black BMW, they detected the smell of marijuana. One search of his belongings later, they turned up "a small bag of pot on his person."
Reports state Frank Ocean was given a verbal warning for speeed, then was cited by police officers for marijuana possession, driving on a suspended license (due to previous speeding incidents) and for having tinted windows.
The "Novacane" singer's license was confiscated immediately, and his passenger was then allowed to drive the vehicle away.
For a few days, Frank Ocean remained mum on the drama that occurred after he was pulled over Jan. 3. Later, he tweeted this gem: "hi guys, i smoke pot. ok guys, bye."
He then went on to explain, "hi guys, i drive a m3. that b***h fast..ok guys, bye. :)"
Are we all clear on that then? Frank Ocean guilty of speeding, and guilty of pot possession in the closing hours of 2012 by his own admission.
After tweeting, "i slept thru the countdown," Ocean looked to the year to come, noting, "2013 sounds very futuristic."
