Cee Lo Green Charged With Sexual Assault And Possession of Drugs?

Is it true that one of our favorite judges on “The Voice” is being charged with sexual assault and possession of Ecstasy?  Well, yes and no.  Known not only for his musical talents but also for his unique and entertaining wardrobe choices, singer Cee Lo Green, has been charged with possession of a felony drug (Ecstasy) and the allegation of sexual assault has been dropped.

This case against Cee Lo Green, real name Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, began over a year ago when a women accused Cee Lo of slipping Ecstasy into her drink during dinner at a Los Angeles sushi restaurant.  After dinner the alleged victim blacked out and didn’t remember anything that happened the rest of the evening until the next morning when she woke up in Cee Lo’s bed naked.  Supposedly the women, not from LA, immediately went back home where she contacted a lawyer to try to collect money from Cee Lo for what had happened.  With no luck and no extra money in her pockets, the women then contact the police and filed a report, which was transferred to LA police.

After many months of police investigation, the Los Angeles County District Attorney decided not to file charges of sexual assault due to lack of evidence but did follow through with filing the felony charge of furnishing ecstasy.  According to sources, Cee Lo had been on numerous dates with the alleged victim and they had been sexually intimate on several occasions before this incident happened.

Green’s criminal defense attorney stated, “We are pleased that the Los Angeles County District Attorney has completed its investigation and concluded that the evidence did not support the false and unfounded claims made over a year ago.”

This morning Cee Lo was present at court with his defense attorney by his side, where he pled not guilty to the felony drug charge.  Before his court appearance, the singer told TMZ reporters he was relieved and not scared — relieved that he’s not being charged with sexual assault, and not scared of the drug charge.

If found guilty of the felony drug charge, Cee Lo could be singing behind bars, spending a maximum of four years in prison.  His next court date has been scheduled for sometime in November.  We will keep you posted on Cee Lo’s legal happenings.

As for “The Voice”, have no fear, Judge Cee Lo Green will not be fired and no changes will be made to this season.

Rapper 2 Chainz Marijuana Case Update

Rapper 2 Chainz hired the right criminal defense attorney to defend him against possession of marijuana allegations – because as of yesterday the drug charges have been dropped!  The Maryland State judge concluded there was not enough evidence to support the allegation the marijuana belonged solely to 2 Chainz.

Remember that arrest back in February, 2 Chainz gets busted by police for possession of marijuana and is arrested while the other 6 people in his van were allowed to leave.  Hmmm, 7 people in a van smelling like burnt marijuana and only one is arrested, which happened to be the driver 2 Chainz.  Not the best decision for Maryland police to only arrest 1 out of seven, but at least they got a photo op with the rapper while they were booking him at the station!  Check out my earlier blog “Rapper 2 Chainz Forced to take Pics with Cops after being Arrested for Marijuana” for all the arrest details.

High probability 2 Chainz is still tweeting “smh” (shaking my head), despite his marijuana case victory.

Rapper 2 Chainz Forced to take Pics with Cops after being Arrested for Marijauna

Dang, what a Valentines Day for Rapper 2 Chainz, pulled over for speeding, popped for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, then taken to the police station booked and later forced to take celebrity photos with two local officers.  It’s not like 2 Chainz had an option to say no to taking the pics, he didn’t want to piss off the officers and add obstruction of justice to his list of charges.  Besides it is in 2 Chainz best interest to keep his fans happy, just look at these pleased police smiles, they love 2 Chainz!

Valentines evening around 9 PM, 2 Chainz was driving 79 miles an hour on Route 50 heading to his concert appearance at the University of Maryland.  A state trooper pulled him over for speeding.  Upon questioning the Grammy nominated rapper and 6 other passengers, the state patrol officer smelled an odor of burnt marijuana, providing a reason for the officer to search 2 Chainz’s white van.

Officers found trace amounts of marijuana and a grinder (a device to smash cannabis) on 2 Chainz which led to his arrest.  The 6 other passengers were allowed to leave.  2 Chainz was taken to Maryland Police Station and charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.  Upon his release that night, 2 Chainz abided the cops request and took the fan photo.  The rapper left the police station furious and began tweeting about the situation, “We [went] to jail for a grinder??? REALLY???…da f-k u know? Haha wut a valentines day!!!…Locked me up and then Wanted pictures smh (shaking my head).

If found guilty of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, 2 Chainz will have to pay some pocket change of $1000.00 and will spend up to a year in the pokey.
