As reported by TMZ, Frankie Jonas, also known as the “Bonus Jonas,” a sixteen-year-old brother of Joe, Nick, and Kevin Jonas, was busted for cannabis possession. It happened on Tuesday night, Nov. 22, 2016, outside of a convenience store in Nashville, Tennessee. The source says he got caught with some illegal marijuana on him.
Fans have always liked Nick, Joe, and Kevin, as well as their youngest brother, and were very surprised that he got in trouble with the law and was caught with pot. Nevertheless, they continue to support Frankie after his arrest.
In fact, it was not an actual arrest as the “Bonus Jonas” has already been released from detention. Lucky for him, cannabis was decriminalized in Nashville in September 2016. The penalties for the possession of small amounts of weed were reduced to a fifty-dollar fine or ten hours of community service. The youngest Jonas surely has got good timing!
Frankie’s family is very proud of him and says he is a good boy. He won a Teen Choice award, has already graduated high school, and started college recently. In some interviews, Frankie’s brother Nick has spoken highly of him. Nobody thinks the “Bonus Jonas” can become the kind of person to do drugs.
Sources close to the Jonas family told TMZ that the youngest brother had always kept his nose clean. But in early November, while being in Hawaii with Nick, Frankie was seen smoking something on a golf course.
It has been reported that Frankie is extremely regretful about the incident.
But, as it is said on TMZ, even Jonas boys will be boys.
Formed in 2005, Jonas Brothers became popular after their appearances on the Disney Channel. Frankie also appeared on the Disney Channel series Jonas next to his famous brothers. Joe, Nick, and Kevin Jonas released four albums: It’s About Time, Jonas Brothers, A Little Bit Longer, and Lines, Vines and Trying Times. The Jonas Brothers band has won Grammy and American music awards and sold 17 million albums worldwide. In 2013, after eight years together, the group split, and Joe and Nick started careers of their own.
