Zac Brown Admits He Was in the ‘Wrong Place at the Wrong Time’ at Police Raid

Zac Brown

Zac Brown has taken the high road and come clean with his involvement in a police raid at a hotel last week. The singer took to facebook to admit his mistakes.

The truth will set you free, and I’ve always said its better to come clean then to hide. The story broke early this morning that Zac was at a party busted by south Florida police last week.

Zac Brown in Hotel Room Drug Bust?

Zac Brown has gotten himself in a bit of hot water, and it sounds like he tried to cover it up. According to TMZ, Zac Brown was in a hotel room raided at the Four Seasons in Palm Beach last Friday around 5:30am. Inside police found strippers, drugs and nine people partying, one of whom was Zac.

Apparently, the police were so starstruck, some even asking for autographs while mocking the strippers who didn’t know who Zac was, the singer and the authorities struck a deal to keep him out of the police report since he had a wife and kids at home.

No word from Zac or his publicist yet. One can only hope this isn’t true, since Zac has made a name for himself as a family man, but unfortunately TMZ is rarely wrong. Zac and his wife Shelly have five children.
