‘Lean On Me’ Actor Arrested for Buying 200 POUNDS of Weed – TMZ
The guy who starred as troubled youth Thomas Sams in the 1989 classic “Lean On Me” was arrested in Arizona for allegedly buying 200 pounds of pot from an undercover cop this week.
This is awesome on so many levels. Did he learn nothing from Joe Clarke? Morgan Freeman is rolling in his day coffin. I’m going to do a study where I take 15 average Asian high school kids and compare them against the cast of Lean On Me to see which group did better for themselves. Sams ruined it for his friends in the movie by not knowing the school anthem. This is one of those cases where something mirrors something else. I think. I’m just hoping I don’t find that any of the actors have been on Hooker’s at the Point. I’ll be crushed.
Jermaine “Huggy” Hopkins has been charged with two felony counts of possessing, transporting and trying to sell marijuana.
Did he actually tell the cops that his nickname is “Huggy”? I’m thinking if you’re almost 40 and people are calling you “Huggy”, that maybe, just maybe, reassess should be more than just a ridiculously low scoring three syllable word in Scrabble.
According to police, the 38-year-old actor lives in North Carolina … but traveled to AZ to make the drug deal on Tuesday.
I’ve seen Jack-O’-Lanterns with less hollow eyes. If you gaze into his hollowed out eye-sockets, you can actually see his diabetes.
Cops in Maricopa County say they set up the sting operation … and after Hopkins took possession of the dope, they pulled over his SUV and arrested him. Cops say they found $100k in cash in the ride.
When you can buy real estate with your glove compartment cash, it doesn’t take the Bloodhound Gang to come to the conclusion that this isn’t your first “under the table” cash transaction.
Officials later searched Hopkins’ Arizona apartment and claim they found an additional 100 pounds of weed.
Talk about planning for a potential dry patch. I have a feeling that as a young hugging thespian, little Jermaine wasn’t very good at Hide n Seek.
“Ready or not, here I come!” “I’m right here! It’s me, Huggy! Give me a cookie!”
Police say Hopkins told them he got involved in the drug deal to provide a nice Christmas for his family.
Quite possibly the silliest excuse ever. If you shoplift a Barbie Doll, I can buy the argument that you’re doing it so your kid doesn’t cry on Christmas. I think though, that when your drug deals are measured in hundreds of pounds, you might start fixin to come up with a better reason why you done did it.
Hopkins is being held on $35,000 bond. If convicted, he faces up to 5 years in prison.
If convicted, Joe Clarke’s bat will end up being the least painful of all his encounters with long shafty weapons.
