Robin Thicke was arrested for marijuana possession in New York City on Friday (February 17), according to reports. The 34-year-old “Lost Without You” singer was apprehended near Manhattan’s Madison Square Park after he was pulled over for throwing something out of the window of his Cadillac Escalade, a source told Access Hollywood.
Police reportedly opened the cigarette box in the vehicle and found an unknown amount of marijuana. Thicke was taken to a police station and issued a summons before being dismissed. He was reportedly held for 15 minutes and signed autographs for the staff while in the station.
No official statement has been made from Thicke or his reps on the charges.
Thicke released his fifth studio album, Love After War, in December. His single “Pretty Little Heart” featuring Lil Wayne was released in November. The duo had previously collaborated on “Shooter” and “Shoot Me Down” and from Wayne’s Tha Carter II and Tha Carter III albums, respectively. Thicke and his wife, actress Paula Patton, had their first child, Julian Fuego, in April 2010.
