Love Island star Javonny Vega once busted for possession of weed before joining dating show
LOVE Island star Javonny Vega was once busted for possession of marijuana before he joined the hit dating show to find love.
Javonny, 26, has been coupled up with Olivia Kaiser since the premiere of Love Island, as she fell for his fun-loving personality.
The Sun can exclusively reveal that before his stint on reality TV, the real estate investor was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
In an incident report obtained from Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, Javonny was pulled over by authorities during a traffic stop on February 8, 2017 while driving his white Mercedes.
The officer’s report read: “As I approached the vehicle, I could smell the odor of raw cannabis emitting from the vehicle.”
Javonny told the cop to search the car when asked if there was “anything illegal in the vehicle.”
The officer found a “black grinder in the center console, which is commonly used as paraphernalia to grind up cannabis.”
The report continued: “Inside the grinder, I located a green leafy substance. The green leafy substance weighed approximately 2.9 grams.”
The substance tested positive for cannabis.
Javonny was charged with possession of cannabis under 20 grams and possession of paraphernalia.
He was given a Notice to Appear in court, but was not arrested.
In court records obtained by The Sun, Javonny pleaded not guilty to the two counts against him.
The outcome in the case is Nolle Prosequi, meaning he was not prosecuted for the charges.
Javonny is up for elimination on tonight’s Love Island.
