80s Pop Star El Debarge Arrested for Possession of Controlled Substance

Eighties pop singer El Debarge was arrested earlier this month for possession of a controlled substance, and is currently in jail without bail thanks in part to two other warrents for his arrest.

El Debarge, whose real life moniker is Patrick Eldra Debarge, was arrested last year as well on multiple charges including vandalism, drugs and domestic violence.

He will be back in court tomorrow.  We’ll just see where this leads.

Follow Up To Ryan O’Neal and Son’s Meth Bust

Last month I reported that Actor Ryan O’Neal and his son Redmond had been arrested for drug possession of Methamphetamine.  Now, both men have been officially charged with felony possession of methamphetamines.  In addition, Redmond was charged with two misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and one misdemeanor count of illegal possession of pepper spray.  Redmond is already on probation for a heroin and crystal meth arrest earlier in the year, so this will probably not go well. That is, unless they have an awesome criminal law attorney who can defend them and work to get these very serious charges reduced.

Both men are scheduled for arraignment on November 13th.

George Michael Arrest for Suspicion of Drug Possession

Over the weekend, a 45-year old man was arrested in a London public toilet on suspicion of drug possession after a tip-off from the bathroom attendant, and later released with a “caution” for possession of class A and class C drugs.

Although Michael was not named by police, other sources were later able to confirm his identity. Michael pleaded guilty last May for driving while unfit and was banned from driving for two years.  In an interview last year, Michael proudly proclaimed “…and I can afford my marijuana so that’s not a problem.”

Barenaked Ladies singer Steven Page was arrested on July 11th for cocaine possession.  Cops saw a suspicious vehicle outside an apartment in New York City, and while they investigated observed a man and a woman inside an apartment with a powder substance and an “unknown white capsule”.  A field test came back positive as cocaine.

Page, and the woman Stephanie Ford, were charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, while Ford was also charged with possession of pot.

Both were released on a $10,000 bail.

The band has since pulled out of playing at the Disney Music Block Party, while their manager has said through the band’s website that the “members of the band completely support Steven Page, but we don’t want to put Disney in an awkward position before issues involving Steven’s arrest are resolved.”
