Ocean was first pulled over while driving on U.S. 395 on Dec. 30 in Eastern Sierra Nevada, Calif., and was pulled over again at about 4:30 p.m. on New Year's Eve on the same road, according to the Mono County Sheriff's Department. He was allegedly going more than 90 mph in a 65-mph zone both times.
The police deputy who pulled Ocean over the second time smelled "a strong odor of marijuana" coming from the car, and later found a small bag of marijuana on the singer, according to the sheriff's department.
Police confiscated Ocean's license and cited him for driving with a suspended license, having tinted front windows and marijuana possession. He received a verbal warning for speeding.
The Grammy nominee flippantly addressed the incidents on Twitter on Jan. 3, writing, "hi guys, i smoke pot. ok guys, bye" and then, "hi guys, i drive a m3. that bitch fast..ok guys, bye. :)"
