Frank Ocean has lost his driver’s license after police said they pulled over the Grammy-nominated singer twice within two days in California for speeding and marijuana, according to multiple news reports.
The Mono County Sheriff’s Department said, Ocean, 25, whose real name is Christoper Edwin Breaux, was pulled over twice in California’s Eastern Sierra Nevada last year, Entertainment Weekly reported.
Ocean was first arrested on Dec. 30 for speeding in his black BMW; he was reportedly driving more than 90 mph in a 65 mph zone. Ocean was pulled over again for speeding on New Year’s Eve around 4:30 p.m. Sheriff’s spokeswoman Jennifer Handen said “a strong odor of marijuana wafted out as a deputy approached the vehicle.” Ocean was found with a small bag of pot and was cited for marijuana possession, authorities said.
California Highway Patrol Sgt. Andrew Thompson said a CHP officer gave Ocean a verbal warning for speeding and cited the singer for driving with a suspended license and for having tinted front windows. A passenger was allowed to drive Ocean home, the report said.
Police said that Ocean's driver's license has been suspended and that he faces a marijuana possession charge.
Frank Ocean was nominated for multiple Grammys -- including Album of the Year for his debut solo effort “Channel Orange” -- as well as Record of the Year for the song "Thinkin Bout You.”
