Don’t these celebrity types ever learn?
Dream South Beach Hotel owner Vikram Chatwal was arrested at Fort Lauderdale International Airport on Tuesday, TMZ was the first to report. As per the Broward County Sheriff’s Office report, Chatwal (rumored to be dating Padma Lakshmi) tried to board with a bag containing all kinds of drugs.
Chatwal was booked on one count of trafficking (six grams of heroin) and seven counts of possession including cocaine, buprenorphine (an opioid), clonazepam (sedative), alprazolam (Xanax) and lorazepam (muscle relaxant), ketamine (a horse tranquilizer) and marijuana.
“The arrestee provided a statement to narcotics detectives admitting possessing and purchasing the controlled substances illegally,” wrote Officer Carmen Hunsinger.
Chatwal, 41, had a stint in rehab in 2010 for alcohol issues. Maybe he and friend Lindsay Lohan talk about their problems.
A publicist for Dream had no comment when reached by The Miami Herald.
