If you had asked me last week to predict which Penn might get arrested in the future with a bunch of drugs in their car, I would point to Sean Penn, but I’d be very wrong. According to TMZ, Sean’s 24-year-old son Hopper Penn was arrested yesterday in Nebraska for possession of weed and shrooms.
Law enforcement sources say that Hopper and his 26-year-old girlfriend Uma von Wittkamp were pulled over by police outside of Lincoln for failing to signal. While they were stopped, cops detected “drug activity” – which I want to believe is official code for “acting sketchy as hell” – and so they searched the car. Police reportedly found 14 grams of weed, 3 grams of shrooms, and 4 amphetamine pills. Hopper was arrested for just the shrooms and half an ounce of weed, while Uma was booked for the amphetamines and the shrooms.
Radar says that Sean and Robin Wright’s son is being held at the Hamilton County Jail, and that his bail is set at $25,000. It’s not known what Uma’s bail has been set at.
Hopper has dealt with drug issues for a while. Last year he admitted that he spent some time in rehab for a meth addiction in 2014. He also claimed that his trip to rehab happened after his dad asked him whether he wanted rehab or a bus bench. It’s only weed and shrooms, but still – something tells me Hopper might be headed back to rehab. And when he gets out, he should probably try to get a hold of Ryan Gosling. Because based on that mugshot, he could easily pull off playing his brother in one of those movies where Ryan acts like a down-and-out street tough.
