Odd Future’s Frank Ocean reportedly ran into a little bit of drama on New Year’s Eve (December 31) as new reports claim he got cited on drug possession in California.
A local sheriff’s department confirmed the online buzz on Thursday (January 3).
Mono County Sheriff’s Office says the incident happened around 4:30pm, when a Mono County Deputy Sheriff, with the assistance of a California Highway Patrol Officer, saw a black BMW traveling at a high rate of speed, southbound on US Hwy 395 near Tom’s Place. The car was stopped by the deputy, and as the deputy approached the vehicle, he said he smelled a strong odor of marijuana. Mono County Sheriff’s Office says Christopher Breaux, aka Frank Ocean, age 25, of Beverly Hills, Calif., had a small bag of marijuana on his person. Breaux was cited for possession of marijuana and released. (My News 4)
Other sites claim Ocean got pulled over for speeding and received a Notice to Appear for driving with a suspended license.
“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),” the statement read. “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.” (CBS Local)
