Bob Denver, a.k.a. Gilligan, was arrested last Thursday for receiving a package of marijuana (about 35 grams) at his West Virginia home. This was the capper to a nasty week of celebrity drug busts. On Wednesday, Brad Renfro, the 15-year-old actor who made his film debut in “The Client,” was stopped by police in Knoxville, Tenn., while carrying a white powdery substance and what appeared to be marijuana. And on Monday, singer Scott Weiland’s tour was abruptly canceled when the rocker was nabbed in New York City with $100 worth of heroin. One bright spot about these unfortunate events (should jail time ensue for any of the trio): Prison talent shows will certainly improve.
