UPDATE: Robinson has reportedly entered a “tentative guilty plea” in court. This will allow him 18 months to complete a drug counseling program.
Believe it or not, a Hollywood-related arrest can go unnoticed for quite some time.
According to TMZ, Craig Robinson, one of the star’s of Pineapple Express, was pulled over back in June after committing a traffic violation. After searching the vehicle, the actor was subsequently arrested for drug possession.
Robinson, who also plays Darryl in The Office, has since been charged by the L.A County D.A.‘s office for possession of meth and ecstasy and being under the influence of cocaine, amphetamines and cannabinoids.
Coincidentally, this news comes shortly after Shelley Malil, an actor who starred in The 40-Year-Old Virgin, was arrested for stabbing his girlfriend. Should we now start blaming these two incidents on the Curse of Steve Carell?

Although he faced up to nearly 4 years in prison, actor Gary Dourdan managed to leave court today with only a slap on the hand.
The CSI star had been charged with three counts of felony drug possession after a police search of his car back on April 28. After pleading guilty to the Ecstasy and cocaine charges (a third for heroin was dismissed), the 41-year-old was ordered to complete a diversion program.
In a statement to the press, Dourdan’s lawyer said the star was, of course, sorry for his mistakes. “He very much regrets what happened, and he’s very embarrassed by what occurred, but he’s looking forward to moving on and getting back to work.”

Since that initial story, TV Guide hinted that Gary’s departure may have been prompted by studio execs. Why? Possibly because of an “ongoing problem personal to Dourdan.”
