SOUTHERN GROUND/VARVATOS/BMLG artist ZAC BROWN released a statement FRIDAY (4/15), after his name was linked to the scene of a drug bust at the FOUR SEASONS HOTEL in PALM BEACH, FL a week earlier. BROWN was not charged, but was said to be in a hotel room with eight others, two of whom were charged with possession of marijuana and cocaine.
"My dad always said nothing good ever happens when you stay out late,” said BROWN’s statement. “It's a lesson I learned the hard way last week, being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I attended a private gathering at a MIAMI-area hotel and had only been there for a short time when police officers arrived and arrested two people in the room who had just showed up a few minutes before. I did not know these people and had no idea that there were drugs in their possession. I cooperated fully with the authorities and am not part of any ongoing police investigation. Everyone is responsible for their actions, and I regret using poor judgment and putting myself in that position. I am focused on continuing to make great music for my fans, and on representing my family and community well with our philanthropic work. And next time I'll make sure to remember what my dad taught me. - ZAC"
