Corey Clark arrested, pleads not guilty to drug charges; is still in jail after not posting bond

Perennial loser Corey Clark has been arrested again. Corey, you’ll recall, either left American Idol 2 because producers learned of his arrest for beating up his sister or his affair with Paula Abdul, depending upon who you believe.

Corey “was arrested in North Little Rock early Monday on charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia,” and also because of “outstanding warrants from Arizona, where Clark was arrested and charged earlier this year for aggravated harassment and interference with judicial proceedings,” the Arkansas Morning News reports.

He “pleaded not guilty to possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia,” but “remained in jail Tuesday afternoon because he had not posted bond,” Arkansas’ KATV reports. That bond was $5,000.
