Controversial singer Chico DeBarge, known for his '80s song "Talk To Me" is in trouble with the law after being arrested for drug possession.


DeBarge was caught with possession of meth in Burbank, California, earlier this month, when he was seen trying to unlock an SUV using a piece of wire at a Walmart parking lot.

Seeing that he was trying to break into the car, police officers searched him and found methamphetamine in his pockets. He was then placed under arrest after finding more drug paraphernalia in his SUV.



It turns out, the reason why he was trying to unlock his car with a piece of wire was that he left his keys inside.

Chico was ultimately released after being booked at the Burbank City Jail, but formal charges are still pending review by the City Attorney.


Drugs have been a part of DeBarge's life since rising to fame, having had a self-titled debut album that had his hit single "Talk To Me." After the release of his second album in the mid-'90s, he served prison time for drug trafficking.


In 2007, he was yet again caught with drugs, admitting that he's struggled with addiction for years. A good 12 years later, it seems his dependency on drugs is something that continues to plague him every day.



Earlier this year, another star was revealed to have been arrested for drug possession. Mama June and her boyfriend Geno Doak were caught at a gas station in Alabama back in March which led to their arrest.

At first, police were called to the scene after an altercation between the couple. In the end, they ended up finding illegal substances in their car.

June claimed she was the owner of the car and was responsible for everything inside it, so she was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.


However, her boyfriend ended up with the same charges anyway, with an additional charge for domestic violence and harassment.

Mama June's car was impounded, and she worked quite hard to get it out of there and back in her possession.
