Jermaine Hopkins, who starred in the film Lean on Me, was busted on a drug charge after trying to speed past the cops.

According to TMZ, North Carolina police spotted Hopkins going 70 in a 55 mph speed zone and pulled him over. During the stop, they also found 5.7 lbs. of marijuana in his car, so in addition to the speeding ticket, he was hit with a charge of felony drug possession with intent to sell.

Hopkins was released after his arrest on $3,000 bond.

This isn’t the first time Hopkins has gotten in trouble with the police for drugs. He was also arrested in 2011 after buying 200 lbs. of weed from an undercover cop. He was sentenced to 3 years of probation for that drug charge.
