He was initially pulled over for a broken car light, but after noticing Turner’s attempt to consume items in his car, a subsequent investigation led to the discovery of .7 grams of methamphetamine and 1.7 grams of crack cocaine.
“He tried to eat the drugs before the officers could seize them from him,” says Capt. Q.T. Arendell of the Alvin Police Department in Texas.
In addition to the May 6th charges, police reports note other outstanding warrants for Ike Turner Jr. He is detained at the Brazoria County Jail and has not yet posted the $70,000 bail, according to jail records.
Ike Turner Jr. shared in a 2018 Daily Mail interview that he briefly worked as a sound engineer for his mother after his parents divorced, but stopped after his father allegedly beat him with a pistol for doing so. He also admitted that he had not talked to his mother, Tina Turner, in nearly two decades.
