In a scenario more suited to the life of Chuck Bass than that of Nate Archibald, ‘Gossip Girl’ actor Chace Crawford was arrested early Friday morning in Plano, Texas, on suspicion of possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana.

Crawford was in a 2003 Nissan 350Z with a male friend outside Ringo’s Pub in Plano when they were questioned by police, who searched them and the car. According to TMZ sources, ‘one unlit joint’ was found. A police spokeswoman told the Dallas Morning News she could not confirm that detail.

The actor, whom E! Online says was in the area visiting family and friends while ‘Gossip’ is on hiatus, posted bail and is no longer in police custody. The misdemeanor charge carries a maximum sentence of 180 days in the pokey and a $2,000 fine.

Perhaps he was doing research for an upcoming bad-boy arc as character Nate?

Aside from his Upper East Side antics on the CW, Crawford played a drug dealer in the Sundance film ‘Twelve.’ Yeah, that one’s too easy for us too.
