Craig Robinson has built his career on making people laugh — but on Wednesday, Oct. 9, he found himself in a not-so-funny situation in the Bahamas. According to the Associated Press, the comedian was detained in the Bahamian capital Nassau for drug possession.
Best known for playing Darryl Philbin on NBC’s The Office, Robinson, 41, was attempting to board a plane back to the U.S. when customs agents discovered he was carrying a small amount of marijuana and “suspicious” pills (later revealed to be ecstasy), Superintendent Stephen Dean of the Royal Bahamas Police Force told the AP. “It was nothing major,” Dean said.
Even so, Robinson was taken into custody and ordered to appear before a magistrate. He reportedly told the court he did not know that the drugs (which he brought from the U.S.) were illegal in the Bahamas.
After pleading guilty to two counts of drug possession, the Hot Tub Time Machine actor was fined $1,000 and ordered to leave the country. He could have faced up to four years in prison, the AP reports.
Incidentally, this is not Robinson’s first drug-related run-in with the law. Back in June 2008, he was arrested by Culver City, Calif., police on suspicion of possessing MDMA. Prosecutors charged him with two felony counts of drug possession and one count of being under the influence of illegal drugs; he later agreed to take drug education classes in exchange for the charges being dropped.
