Frank Ocean Arrested On New Year’s Eve, Media Lunge On Homophobic Rumours

Written by Mike Hohnen on January 4, 2013

Police involved with the recent arrest of Frank Ocean have intervened with an in-depth report after gossip websites took the opportunity to grill the musician about his sexuality. Despite claims that Ocean was busted on account of suspicious behaviour with another male in his vehicle on New Year’s Eve, Police have stated that this was not the case, but rather an issue of traffic and drug offenses.

According to CBS Local, Gossip site Mediatakeout was one of the main outlets to drop the term ‘suspicious behaviour’, with many other sites taking it a step further and adding that the said behaviour involved sexual acts between the two men in Mono County, California.

California Highway Patrol have since set the record straight, confirming in a note to CBS Local that Ocean got the attention of police after he was clocked travelling around 90mph in a 65mph area, or so says NME. Once pulled over, it was discovered that Ocean was driving on a suspended license and officers on the scene smelt marijuana, a small amount of which was found in the vehicle.

Ocean, real name Christopher Breaux, was given a notice to appear in court in regards to driving with a suspended licence and speeding, and in relation to his heavily tinted windows. He was cautioned about the weed and released on the spot after his co-rider volunteered to drive Ocean’s BMW.

Prior to the release of his groundbreaking album Channel ORANGE, Ocean came out very publicly on his Tumblr account. Celebs and fans greeted the news with thunderous approval, though the world being what it is, there will always be those out there attempting to make him regret it.
