Yes, Zac Brown was in the room when a drug bust went down, but his apology is epic

April 15, 2016

You may have heard that Zac Brown was involved in a drug raid in Palm Beach last week. TMZ broke the story saying cops were called to investigate a suspicious car; a man was arrested and claimed to have arrived with two women who had gone up to party in one of the hotel rooms. When police entered the room, Zac Brown was one of the guests in attendance.

This afternoon, Zac took to his Facebook page to set the record straight, and his apology is everything we love about country music:

My dad always said nothing good ever happens when you stay out late. It’s a lesson I learned the hard way last week, 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. 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 investigation. Everyone is responsible for their actions, and I regret using poor judgment and putting myself in that position.

I am focused on continuing to make great music for my fans, and on representing my family and community well with our philanthropic work.

And next time I'll make sure to remember what my dad taught me.

Gotta love a guy who can admit to his mistakes, and take the opportunity to learn from them.
