Chace Crawford Has Taught Us All Why You Never Want to Get Caught With Weed in Texas

Chace Crawford was able to strike a deal in court today regarding the case against him that started after a Plano, Texas cop found him sitting in a car with a joint last summer. The Gossip Girl actor kinda got the book thrown at him considering all he in his possession was one measly doobie, which is a good or bad thing, depending on whether or not you think celebrities are never fairly judged in court or if the good green offends you.

The deal is this: If Chace does 24 hours of community service (something that someone at his level of fame should be doing anyway,) reports to a probation officer and stays out of trouble for the next year, the charges will be dropped. Doesn’t seem like all that bad of a punishment when you think about how shitty jail time and the legal system is… but all of that drama over a joint? Do they seriously have nothing better to do in Texas?

What do you think about this punishment? Does Chace deserve to be slapped on the wrist for his actions, or is this whole thing a great big waste of the Texas legal system’s time and resources? I’m in Los Angeles, and I’m pretty sure most cops out here would hop in your car and smoke the doobage with you if you were caught in the same situation, so I have a feeling my idea of drug crimes might be a little skewed.

Kid Cudi Arrested For Drug Possession, Criminal Mischief

Kid Cudi, who you probably best know from last summer’s radio hit “Day ‘n’ Night” (or possibly from the rumors that he’s the one Amanda Bynes won’t stop talking about), was arrested last night on some real ugly charges. According to People.com, the rapper was caught with narcotics, and allegedly destroyed a woman’s property.

The artist, 26, whose real name is Scott Mescudi, repeatedly pounded on and kicked the downtown apartment’s door, ultimately using his bodily force to tear it off its hinges, police sources confirm to PEOPLE. Cudi also broke the woman’s cell phone.

The substance he was found in possession of was liquid cocaine, according to a report in The Guardian. Per police sources, it is unclear whether he was intoxicated at the time.

He did make his scheduled appearance at the Bonnaroo festival in Tennessee on Saturday, telling the crowd he “really wanted to be here tonight.”

Would it kill these young rappers to learn a freakin’ lesson? Wayne doesn’t have to be in jail right now, T.I. didn’t have to be in jail either. Now Cudi is facing charges for something even more stupid than what both of those bros did combined. It’s not even just the rap community. Chace Crawford, why are you driving around with two ounces of weed in your car, you moron?

How hard is it to just follow the fucking rules?

Chace Crawford Arrested For Possession of That Good Herb

Chace Crawford and one of his homies were chillin’ in a car in his native Texas last night when they kinda sorta got busted by a cop with under two ounces of marijuana (click the link to see his mugshot.) For those of you who aren’t familiar, two ounces isn’t exactly a huge amount of weed, but it would probably take even a serious stoner a month and a half to rip through all that green. Looks like someone stocked up before he came home for hiatus and like a moron, carried the whole stash around with him.

The cop spotted Chace and his friend in a pub parking lot and saw that they had a rolled but unsmoked joint in the car. That gave him right to search the vehicle and BAM! Homey went to jail. He was let out on bond pretty quickly, but there will definitely be a follow up with the courts, et c.

Since it’s “just pot” (sorry, I think it’s an essentially harmless drug), I doubt that this will have an effect on his Gossip Girl job or any gigs he may get in the future but GHADDAMN, BOY! Don’t roll around with that big of a sack!
