The Truth About Frank Ocean’s Arrest Rumors


/ January 3, 2013

Despite some ugly rumors from blog sites about Frank Ocean being arrested for “lewd conduct” while driving, CBS received a statement from the California Highway Patrol which explained the incident as “a routine traffic stop and citations for speeding, driving with a suspended license and a tinted window violation. “

CBS Local Reports:

“On 12/31/2012 at approximately 1630 hours, Officer E. Moore, #20190, was in full CHP winter uniform, and driving a black and white departmental sedan (Class E),” the statement read. “Officer Moore was stopped facing northbound in the center median of US-395, north of Tom’s Place monitoring traffic.

Officer Moore observed a black BMW driving southbound on US-395 exceeding the 65 MPH maximum speed limit. Officer Moore accelerated his patrol vehicle in order to follow the BMW, and then observed a marked patrol unit from the Mono County Sheriff’s Department making an enforcement stop on the BMW. After the Mono County Sheriff’s Department unit stopped the BMW, Officer Moore stopped to provide any necessary assistance.”

Ocean received a Notice to Appear for driving with a suspended license, speeding and for the tinted front windows. —-Erik Parker, CBS Local
