R&B singer Robin Thicke was busted today in New York City after cops spotted him smoking a joint while sitting in his Escalade. Thicke was not actually operating the vehicle in question at the time; he was charged with possession after “a small amount” of marijuana was found on his person. For the curious, the exact coordinates of the arrest were Third Avenue and 21st Street, so add that to your working list of “Places Not to Carry Weed If You Are a Well-Known Musician.” (See also: Sierra Blanca, Texas.)
