The police opened the door and found men and women inside and Zac Brown was one of them. The people inside seemed to be ready to party. Two of the people were arrested but Zac Brown was left free. He denied that he had taken any cocaine and also said that he did not know that this was going on there. He said:

“My dad always said nothing good ever happens when you stay out late. It’s a lesson I learned the hard way…being in the wrong place at the wrong time, I attended a private gathering at a Miami-area hotel and had only been there for a short time when police officers arrived and arrested two people in the room who had just showed up a few minutes before.”

He added:

“I did not know these people and had no idea that there were drugs in their possession. I cooperated fully with the authorities and am not part of any ongoing police investigationOpens a New Window..”
