Actor Jermaine “Huggy” Hopkins Busted For Buying 200 Pounds Of Marijuana

It was all good just a week ago.

TMZ  reports that actor Jermaine “Huggy” Hopkins has been popped in Arizona for allegedly buying 200 pounds of marijuana from an undercover detective this week.

The actor who starred alongside Tupac in Juice and Morgan Freeman in Lean On Me was charged with two felony counts of possessing, transporting and trying to sell marijuana.

Huggy, 38,  reportedly lives in North Carolina now  but went to Arizona to make the buy.

Cops in Maricopa County say they set up the sting operation … and after Hopkins took possession of the dope, they pulled over his SUV and arrested him. Cops say they found $100k in cash in the ride.

Hopkins’ Arizona apartment was later searched where they allegedly  found an additional 100 pounds of weed.

Police say Hopkins told them he got involved in the drug deal to provide a nice Christmas for his family.

Hopkins is being held on $35,000 bond. If convicted, he faces up to 5 years in prison.

Life for Blacks in Hollywood is really ruthless that this man had to result to selling weed.

Keep ya head up Huggy.

    The last thing I saw him on was the wayans brothers. I know it’s hard out here but he shouldn’t have risked his freedom like that. He can’t provide for his family or get any acting jobs now that he’s behind bars.

    Dupree had that work.  I wonder if he was crying like he did on Juice when they had him in the interrogation room?

    When the acting roles stop coming (as they did for him years ago) you get a job.
