Last Friday, the cops in Plano, Texas caught themselves one of the most horrible crimals in the country – Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford. The crime? Chace had one joint on him. He wasn’t smoking it or anything, he just had a joint in his pocket (Chace’s story: there was a joint in the car that he was sitting in). The cops arrested him and hauled his pretty-boy ass in, so now we have this skuzzy-yet-pretty mug shot. I think Chace is about to throw up a gang sign! *Clutches pearls* Anyway, today, Friday the 11th, Texas formally charged Chace with one misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana. Guess what kind of sentence comes with one misdeamenor possession charge in Texas? Six f-cking months at most. Can you believe that?
Chace Crawford was charged on Friday with a misdemeanor charge of pot possession, TMZ reports. The 24-year-old Gossip Girl star could face up to six months behind bars.
Crawford was busted with a pal in a car parked outside a pub in his hometown of Plano, Texas on June 4; police discovered an unlit marijuana joint.
“He is pissed,” an insider told Us Weekly immediately after the arrest. “He wasn’t smoking, the pot was in the car and it was his friend’s.”
Yet an old frat brother of the actor’s from Pepperdine University says the star indulged back in the day. “In college, we use to cut class and go lie on the beach and smoke weed,” the pal says. “It sucks that he got arrested!”

Meanwhile, Lindsay is doing lines of cocaine mixed with Ritalin and Adderall in between shots of Stoli and tweeting her ass off on probation. And Chris Brown is off somewhere, coloring in his map of the country of Europe. Honestly, if Chace was charged in another state, I think he would get away with probation or some minor jail time, if he was charged at all. But it’s Texas – something tells me that some prosecutor somewhere in Plano is thinking about “making an example.” I never thought I’d say this, but I feel for Chace, and this whole incident does make me like him a lot more. Poor kid! And before anyone cries double-standard, look – Chace isn’t some crackhead like Lohan. Before this incident, I thought he was totally vanilla and goody-two-shoes. And it really does seem like he truly wasn’t doing anything. Eh.
