The 'Peeples' Star Got Stopped In The Bahamas For Illegal Substances

Craig Robinson found himself in a bit of trouble after he was detained for drug possession in the Bahamas on Wednesday, according to media reports.

Authorities say the 41-year-old actor was stopped while trying to board a plane to Nassau and head back to the United States. It proved to be a difficult task when customs agents reportedly found half a gram of marijuana and 18 ecstasy pills.

Supt. Stephen Dean
of the Royal Bahamas Police Force called the incident "nothing major."

Robinson, who was in the Bahamas for a comedy show, was taken into custody and appeared before a magistrate-- pleading guilty to two counts of drug possession.

Robinson's defense was that he brought the drugs from the United States without knowledge that they were illegal in the Bahamas.

Instead of facing up to four years in prison, he was released with a $1,000 fine and ordered to leave the country immediately.
