In 2004, he faced felony charges of possession of stolen property.

Less than a year later, he was charged with possession of marijuana that was later dismissed… in 2010 he faced graffiti and defacing property charges that were also dismissed.

His Facebook page which is set to “public,” contains several references to drug use. In posts from 2011, he asks, where he can get “syrup,” another says “got some syrup time to drink some and pass out.” Another post says, “got syrup in a cup and smoking a blunt”… MORE
