Music Artist is Charged With a Felony NR13467cj

Los Angeles: Music artist CeeLo Green is charged with furnishing a controlled substance.

On July 16, 2012, a thirty-three year-old female reported that 38-year-old Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, a resident of Fayetteville, Georgia and a singer known as CeeLo Green, drugged her using ecstasy and sexually assaulted her.  The female met with Mr. Callaway for dinner at which time she believed he drugged her. The sexual assault occurred later that night at the Luxe Hotel near the Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles.

On August 1, 2012, the Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery-Homicide Division, Special Assault Section, opened an investigation into these allegations. The case was submitted to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for filing consideration in February of 2013.

On October 21, 2013, the District Attorney’s Office filed 1 felony count of 11379 (A) of the Health and Safety Code, furnishing a controlled substance.  It was determined that there was insufficient evidence to prove rape of an intoxicated person beyond a reasonable doubt.

On October 21, 2013, Callaway presented himself at the Foliz Criminal Justice Center and was arraigned on the charge.
