Two of a kind
Craig Robinson, 43, known for his role in “The Office,” was arrested on Oct. 9, 2013, for trying to board a plane with marijuana and ecstasy on hand. Robinson pleaded guilty to two counts of drug possession. He could have faced four years in prison, but instead the judge fined him $1,000 and told him to leave the country immediately.
Maybe it also slipped 43-year-old Cinquez Cortez’ mind that marijuana is outlawed in most states in America, too, because he was arrested on Nov. 11 for possession of marijuana and public intoxication. Cortez was taken to the Polk County Jail at 9:15 p.m. His bond is set at $1,300.
