Pulled over for speeding, Frank Ocean's car was searched and a bag of marijuana was found. He was also charged with speeding, and having tinted windows.
Frank Ocean was pulled over in California and briefly detained by police when he was stopped for speeding and a search found marijuana in the vehicle.
Driving a black BMW with heavily tinted windows, the OF crooner was pulled over for going approximately 90mph in a 65mph zone as reported by TMZ. When the officer approached the vehicle they noticed the smell of weed and searched the car.
On top of the speeding and weed possession, the channel ORANGE singer was cited for driving with an expired license, and having his windows too heavily tinted.
Initially reports ran wild on the internet that Ocean was detained because of his sexual orientation, but later reports disproved that. He was released on the spot, and the passenger was allowed to drive them home.
