Chace Crawford Rolls into Court for Weed Case

7/1/2010 10:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford rolled into a McKinney, Texas courthouse just moments ago -- where a judge will formally charge the actor for allegedly having an unlit joint in a car he was sitting in.


Chace was technically charged earlier this month -- but Texas law requires the actor to appear in court so the judge can make it official. Chace is facing one misdemeanor count of weed possession.

TMZ broke the story -- Chace was busted in a Plano, TX parking lot after cops claim they found one unlit joint in the car he was in with a friend.

If convicted, Chace could face up to 6 months behind bars.

UPDATE 8:15 AM PT: Nothing happened in court today. Chace will not have to show up for the next court appearance, scheduled for August 20.

OMG! All this over a joint? Backward laws. Backward justice. Waste of taxpayer money.

You can drink a few beers and drive, but you can't drive with some fibrous material rolled inside a little piece of paper.

The tree of societal evolution occasionally takes us down some silly dead end branches.

A very high percentage of Texas cops would just let that go. Or take it for their own personal pleasure.

That's why the State's slogan is "DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS". They don't take kindly to "celebrities" who think they are hot **** and above the law. They are not p^ssywhipped like the California courts and Justices are. If you're a celebrity you are more likely to be looked at just a little closer, cause if your guilty they will use you as an example. But I have heard...some, not all, probably keep a little for their troubles. ;D

Crawford: 6 months for a joint.
Lohan: 2 counts of possession of COCAINE = free ride, and oh, what the hell... give her a check, too.
C'mon to Calif, everyone! Plenty of room.
Texas is is only slightly more evolved than Mexico.
