SKATEBOARDING 38 YO MARINOVICH CAUGHT WITH METH: The ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER reports this evening that Todd Marinovich has been been “charged with felony drug possession and resisting a police officer“ after he was spotted by police skateboarding in an area of Newport Beach that prohibits the activity.
Excerpt: “(Marinovich) was found hiding in a carport about 1:30 a.m. (Sunday), police Sgt. Evan Sailor said. After searching Marinovich, police found about one gram of methamphetamine, a metal spoon and a hypodermic needle, Sailor said.
“Marinovich was charged with possession of a controlled substance, which is a felony, as well as unauthorized possession of a hypodermic needle and resisting a police officer, both misdemeanors.”
He is still in Orange County jail in lieu of $50,000 bail. If convicted of the felony, Marinovich could be facing serious jail time, considering “Orange County court records show Marinovich has pleaded guilty or no contest to drug violations or resisting a police officer on at least four occasions since 1997.“
