Yesterday, silken-voiced soul man Cee-Lo Green, legally known as Thomas DeCarlo Calloway, was charged with furnishing a controlled substance, after a 33-year old woman alleged that after the singer slipped a tab of ecstasy into her drink, she woke up naked in bed with him. Green has plead not guilty to the charge.
The L.A. District attorney investigated whether a sexual assault took place, but ultimately chose not to file sexual assault charges, citing a lack of evidence. The woman claims the pair were dining at Wokcano, one of a chain of mid-priced sushi restaurants around Los Angeles not usually known for hosting upscale clientele.
If Green, who waived his right to a speedy trial, is found guilty, he could face up to 4 years in prison for the charges.
