Rapper Taboo Faces Pea-Sized Fine for Drug Charges
Prosecutors say there's no risk of jail time for the Black Eyed Peas member
Rapper Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas is facing a maximum $200 fine – and no time – for two misdemeanor drug charges.
Taboo, whose real name is Jaime Luis Gomez, 31, had a small amount of marijuana when he was arrested in March in the City of Industry, near Los Angeles, after a minor traffic accident, police say.
Prosecutors Thursday charged him with possession of marijuana while driving, and possession of 28.5 grams or less of marijuana, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
If convicted, he faces only the fine and no jail term. His arraignment is set for May 25.
