Craig Robinson, who appeared on The Office and in comedies like Hot Tub Time Machine, was detained for drug possession in the Bahamas Wednesday. Although he could have been sentenced to prison, he was ordered to pay a fine and leave the country.
Robinson had tried to leave Nassau, when customs agents at the airport there found marijuana and suspicious pills in his luggage, Supt. Stephen Dean of the Royal Bahamas Police Force told The Associated Press. “It was nothing major,” Dean said.
TMZ reports that Robinson had appeared before a magistrate and faced up to four years in prison. However, he was only ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and to leave the Bahamas. Robinson reportedly said at the hearing that he was unaware that marijuana and the pills, later found to be Ecstasy, were illegal in the country. He said he brought them in from the U.S.
Robinson was in the Bahamas for a comedy show at the Atlantis resort. During his court appearance, he wore shorts and a t-shirt.
The actor, 41, played Darryl Philbin on The Office and has also appeared in Pineapple Express, Zack and Miri Make a Porn and This Is The End.
