ORIGINAL STORY: Shannon Noll has booked himself a court date after coppers allegedly caught him with a baggie of “white powder” at a south Sydney hotel.
As News Corp reports, the OG Australian Idol runner-up came off second best once again following a run-in with sniffer dogs at the Caringbah Hotel, and police have since charged him with drug possession.
“About 8.15pm yesterday (Thursday 13 September 2018), officers from the Sutherland Shire Police Area Command along with Public Transport & Public Safety Command and the Dog Unit, were conducting a drug operation at a licensed premises on Port Hacking Road at Caringbah,” a police spokeswoman confirmed to the media giant.
“A 42-year-old man was arrested by police after allegedly being detected with white powder, believed to be cocaine.
“The man was issued a Field Court Attendance Notice to appear at Sutherland Local Court on Thursday 11 October 2018, for the offence of possess prohibited drug.”
Nollsie’s drug allegations come on the heels of controversy that saw him go on an expletive-laden tirade after a punter threw a tinnie at him during a show on the outskirts of Sydney.
In happier news though he’s released a new charity song to raise funds for drought relief, and you can catch him live around the country from now through til early next year.
