The Making History star was charged on Tuesday at around 10.46 pm with two misdemeanour counts – criminal possession of cocaine and marijuana – after he allegedly took a rip on West 48th Street in Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan. "Cops patrolling the hood caught a whiff and cited him for misdemeanour drug possession," TMZ quoted law enforcement sources as saying.
"They found the baggie of blow, and hit him with another misdemeanour charge. He was issued a ticket to appear before a judge within 30 days," the source said.
Pally was arrested just a day after it was announced that The Mindy Project will return on Hulu this September with its final season.
Meanwhile, Pally is not the first celebrity who has been caught for illegal drug possession. In the past, several other celebrities have made headlines for illegal possession of marijuana and cocaine.
