Comedian Craig Robinson of NBC’s “The Office” was detained in the Bahamas on October 9 for drug possession and ordered to pay a fine.
According to Supt. Stephen Dean of the Royal Bahamas Police Force, 41-year old Robinson, who was in the country for a comedy show, was arrested after custom agents found half a gram of marijuana and 18 ecstasy pills in his possession as he boarded a plane in Nassau back to the United States.
Robinson appeared before a magistrate and pleaded guilty to two counts of drug possession. He told the court he was not aware that the drugs were illegal in the Bahamas when he brought them.
He was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and leave the country.
