Actor Craig Robinson has been fined $1,000 (£666) for drug possession after he was caught boarding a plane in the Bahamas with Ecstasy and marijuana.

The Pineapple Express star was in the region to shoot scenes for a comedy show, but he was stopped as he tried to board a flight out on Wednesday (09Oct13).

Officers allegedly found 18 Ecstasy pills and half a gram of marijuana on the star, and he was arrested and charged with two counts of possessing illegal drugs.

Robinson appeared before a court later that day and pleaded guilty to the charges. He was fined $1,000 (£666) and ordered to leave the country immediately.

In 2008, the actor was arrested in California for methamphetamine and Ecstasy possession and was ordered to complete a drug education course.
