Craig Robinson in character for “The Office”

Actor and comedian and Chicago native Craig Robinson — who once was a Chicago Public School music teacher on the South Side — was arrested for drug possession in the Bahamas, as he was about to board a plane departing the island country.

Robinson, best known for his roles on “The Office” and “This is The End,” pleaded guilty to two counts of possession. The entertainer reportedly had 18 ecstasy pills and a half-gram of marijuana in his luggage.

The presiding magistrate fined him $1,000 and ordered him out of the Bahamas immediately. Robinson told the court he had bought the drugs in the U.S. — and claimed he was unaware they were illegal in the Bahamas.

Robinson was arrested in 2008 for possession of ecstasy and methamphetamine.
