Chace Crawford, 24, was arrested at around 1 AM CDT in the parking lot of Ringo’s Pub, Kincaid Road in the suburb of Plano with less than two ounces of marijuana in possession. The exact amount is unknown, however. Unconfirmed reports indicate that Crawford was in a car with a friend and that there was “one unlit joint” inside the car when he was arrested.

He has already posted bail and has been released.

If convicted of the misdemeanor case, a Class B offense in this case, he will have to spend six months in jail and pay 2000 USD in fines.

Crawford plays the role of Nate Archibald in the television series Gossip Girl. He is set to appear in the movie Twelve where he will portray a young man selling marijuana to New York teenagers.

The actor was born in Lubbock, Texas but grew up in Plano. He currently declares New York as his home.
