Adam was once arrested, convicted for posession of marijuana, report says

Big Brother 9 houseguest Adam Jasinski, who was recently fired from his job for his comments he made on the show, was once arrested for pot possession. But he didn’t just have a joint; instead, he was “arrested and convicted after being charged with possession of more than 20 pounds of marijuana,” Star magazine reports.

Adam “lived in Manhattan while attending Parson’s School of Design” and court records show that “Adam was arrested at his E. 33rd Street apartment on Feb. 10, 2004, after taking possession of an Airborne Express package containing more than 10 pounds of pot,” Star reports.

The magazine, which promises more details in its print edition, says that “Court papers add that MDA pills — a form of Ecstasy — and cocaine residue were also found during the bust.”
