Canadian singer Robin Thicke was arrested in New York Friday afternoon for marijuana possession, police say. According to officials, the 34-year-old was seen smoking a joint in the back of his parked Cadillac SUV near Madison Square Park in Manhattan in the middle of the day. Officers searched his vehicle and found another blunt inside a cigarette box. Thicke was then arrested, charged with possession, and quickly released; sources say he was very cooperative and even signed autographs for police staff. Back in December, the R&B singer gave an interview to promote his last album, Love After War, and was asked about rumors of past drug use. “Oh gosh, let’s just put it this way, I’ve never met a drug that I didn’t like,” he replied.“But when the baby shows up, you gotta focus. Baby first.” Thicke has a one-year-old son with his wife, actress Paula Patton. At least the cops weren't singling him out; arrests for small-scale marijuana possession have controversially climbed in New York City, with 50,700 people busted last year.
