YIKES, there’s some trouble in the Jonas fam! The youngest member of the famous family, Frankie Jonas, was cited in Nashville after being caught in possession of pot. Uh-oh!
Frankie Jonas, 16, needs to get a talking to from his big brothers! The youngest Jonas Brother was cited for possession of marijuana on Nov. 22, as first reported by TMZ. The site claims that Frankie was outside a convenience store when he was busted.
UPDATE: A source familiar with the case tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that “Frankie was cited, not arrested, for possession of marijuana”.
This behavior is highly unlikely for the teenager, family sources tell the site — not only does he rarely get in trouble, but he’s actually already finished high school and started taking college classes at just 16 years old. Good news for Frankie, though: A recent city measure passed in Nashville calls for reduced penalties if one is caught with a small amount of marijuana. Details on his punishment have not been confirmed.
Frankie’s older brothers, Nick and Joe Jonas, have both openly admitted to trying out marijuana, but we can imagine that they’re probably going to have a word with him about being careful when it comes to drugs. While the 16-year-old hasn’t followed in his big brothers’ musical footsteps, he’s clearly finding a path to success all on his own, and we wouldn’t want to see him put that in jeopardy.
And while Frankie is coming into his own, things are going great for his famous family members. Nick’s solo career absolutely blew up in the last year, while Joe’s band, DNCE, is making a name for themselves now that they’ve released their self-titled debut album on Nov. 18. Then, of course, there’s Kevin Jonas, who just welcomed his second daughter, Valentina, at the end of October, and is building a happy family with his wife, Danielle, in New Jersey. We’re confident Frankie will get back on track!
