So why was R&B singer Frank Ocean pulled over twice during his final days in 2012? Apparently he has a penchant for driving fast, as he was going over 90 mph two times when he was stopped by police. However, that's not all he was cited for.
As reported on Jan 3. by Associated Press via Yahoo! News, Ocean was driving on Dec. 30 and Dec. 31 when he was pulled over in California's Eastern Sierra Nevada. The first date he was speeding along going northbound on U.S. 395 near Keoghs, and was cited for it.
The second time was New Year's Eve. It appeared Ocean was partying it up, as this time he was not only pulled over for speeding on U.S. 395 around 4:30 p.m., but the officer noticed "a strong odor of marijuana" as well. The deputy on the scene recovered a small bag of marijuana from Ocean's person, then cited him for possession.
To add more to all of that, Ocean was given a verbal warning for speeding. He was also cited for driving with a suspended license, and having his front windows tinted a few shades too dark. With all of that, Ocean had his license taken away by the officer, and his passenger had to drive the vehicle away.
Frank Ocean, real name Christopher Breaux, enjoyed a successful 2012 with the release of his debut solo album "Channel Orange." It's currently nominated for multiple 2013 Grammy Awards including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for the song "Thinkin Bout You."
