Somewhere there’s a bunch of high-strung worried moms that are thinking: “See? I just knew cigarettes were a gateway to hard drugs!”
The Sun says that back in September, Madonna’s 16-year-old son Rocco Ritchie was arrested for possession of marijuana about two miles from his father Guy Ritchie’s home. I’m not sure why we’re just hearing about this almost two months later. You know, considering we were practically given unsolicited up-to-the-minute updates from Madonna regarding her last situation with Rocco and Rocco’s daddy.
Rocco was reportedly hanging out with a friend on a wall in the Primrose Hill neighborhood of London on September 28th. Police got a call from some neighbors complaining of kids smoking weed. When they arrived, Rocco allegedly tried to toss his weed. He probably should have tried to toss himself too, because police allegedly found traces of weed on his clothes and a small amount in his backpack. So Rocco was arrested for possession.
A source says that Rocco’s arrest was a long time coming and that he has a reputation in Primrose Hill as a teenage troublemaker.
“Rocco has become a well-known figure in the neighborhood and not for the right reasons. He’s been repeatedly seen acting suspiciously. This incident was the final straw. Local residents are fed up with him acting in this manner and called the police.”
Because Rocco is a minor, not much is going to happen to him. His arrest won’t go on his criminal record (a record of the offense will still be kept). Rocco was dealt with by Camden Borough’s Youth Offending Team, and The Sun says they typically ask first-time offenders to attend some workshops.
I still have no idea how this happened. How was Rocco caught with weed?!? Rocco is the teenage son of two famous rich people. Rocco is rich enough to pay someone to carry his weed for him. Hell, his last name is “Ritchie” – that alone should immediately qualify him for Le Wealthy Offspring’s drug porter program.
