Bling Ringer Nick Prugo

Parents Revoked Bail After

They Discovered His Drug Use

4/22/2012 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bling Ring leader Nick Prugo is rotting away behind bars right now because his parents discovered his secret drug habit and were so PISSED ... they sent him back to jail, TMZ has leaned.

As TMZ first reported, Nick's parents revoked his $200k bail bond last week, forcing him back into the slammer.

Sources close to Nick tell us the real reason his parents bailed on bail is that they discovered Nick was using copious amounts of drugs and decided the best course of action was to axe his temporary freedom.

According to our sources, ever since Nick found out he was jail bound ... his life has been a giant, downward spiral of drug use and even a Xanax-fueled suicide attempt.

Currently Nick is set to serve a two-year sentence starting in May.

Xanax? The last drug someone would try to commit suicide on.

Honestly I feel sorry for him. I know how scared he must be. 2 years when you are young seems like eternity. But at the same time, everyone makes their own bed. You made the decisions that put you in this situation. It was all fun till you got caught huh? I know this phrase is played out, but it fits perfectly here... If you can't do the time, don't do the crime! You got lucky only having to do 2 years. Be happy!

Oh and i have a quick question.. Where is he serving his time? Because don't non violent offenders in california get out in like a fraction of the time? or does that only apply to celebrities?

He engineered break ins at numerous homes, stole millions of dollars worth of peoples things and sold the stolen things for drug money. Then when he got caught he ratted out everyone who was in on it with him.

Two years ????? California courts are a joke!

I never understand why people are waiting to serve their sentence. He should have went to jail when he was charge. Gotta love our justice system that allows criminals to remain on the street.

They steal millions of dollars of property from others who worked for it and got two lousy years in jail, and he wanted to commit suicide. If he were black and only stole $5,000.00 worth of property he wouldn't be getting out of jail until he was eligible for medi-care, IF white people decided to let him out then.

No sympathy for this clown. Overindulged punk who got caught - too bad, so sad. Nobody is shedding a tear for you, buddy.

You would think a gay man wouldn't be so stressed out about prison.

Dear Nick's Parents,
I'm really sorry for what you are having to go through with your son. It's hard when your children go in ways you never dreamed they'd go. All the best to you!
