Actor Craig Robinson, of "The Office" fame (as well as "This Is The End," "Knocked Up" and so much more) was arrested in the Bahamas yesterday for trying to get on an airplane with half a gram of marijuana and 18 ecstasy pills.

Customs agents discovered the drugs and found them to be "suspicious," according to the Associated Press.

E! Online adds that Robinson had to appear before a magistrate, and impressively had the balls to say in the hearing that he didn't realize the drugs were illegal in the Bahamas.

TMZ reports that Robinson got off with a $1,000 fine rather than the potential four years in prison, and that Bahama officials said the incident was "nothing major." He was headed back to the states after doing a comedy show at the Atlantis hotel.
