Zac Brown Releases Statement After Reports of Drug Bust Cover-Up
Reports surfaced early Friday alleging Zac Brown's possible involvement in a drug bust cover-up in Florida.
Police had been called to the Palm Beach Four Seasons Hotel where they found Zac in a room along with two other men and nine women.
Quite a bit of cocaine was also discovered.
On Friday afternoon, Zac Brown released the following statement:
My dad always said nothing good ever happens when you stay out late. 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.
