Robert Downey Jr. may be one of Disney‘s biggest stars now. But he was once arrested at Disneyland for Smoking pot.
Robert Downey was honored with a Disney Legends award at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, On Friday. He is known as “Marvel Star”.
While speaking onstage, the 54-year-old actor jokingly revealed that he had once been “arrested”; and briefly detained at Disneyland after he was caught “smoking pot” on the park’s premises.
The Marvel star talked about his escapade and said, “Here’s a bit of trivia for you. The very first time I went to Disneyland I was transported to another place -within moments of being arrested.”
The actor recalled the incident and revealed that he was arrested for smoking pot. “I was brought to a surprisingly friendly processing center, given a strict warning, and returned to, if memory serves one very disappointed group chaperone.
I’ve been sitting on that shame for a while and I’m just going to release it here tonight. I would like to make amends to whoever had to detain me for smoking pot in a gondola without a license,” said the actor
