George Clinton, the godfather of American funk music, was arrested in Tallahassee early Saturday and charged with cocaine possession outside an Apalachee Parkway Circle K.
According to arrest reports, Clinton was sitting in a Gold Nissan Sentra smoking what appeared to be a cigar. A police officer found a bag containing a substance that field-tested positive for cocaine and a glass pipe, which the officer said is commonly used to smoke crack.
Clinton could not be immediately reached at his office/recording studio in Tallahassee. Clinton is the founder and musical leader of legendary funk group Parliament, which became the equally legendary Funkadelic in the 1970s. His many hits include "One Nation Under a Groove," "Flashlight" and "Atomic Dog." Parliament-Funkadelic was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. The group now tours as George Clinton and the P-Funk All Stars.
An attorney for funk-music legend George Clinton, who was arrested Saturday on possession of cocaine and paraphernalia charges, said Tuesday night that his client was searched illegally.
Attorney Matt Willard of Tallahassee's Jansen Law Firm said he would file a not-guilty plea on Clinton's behalf this morning at the Leon County Courthouse.
"It has already been determined that the facts outlined in the (arrest report) are inaccurate, and at times misleading," he said in a news release. "... It appears as if the detention, search, and subsequent arrest of Mr. Clinton were all unlawful."
