Montel Williams - Montel Williams Detained For Possessing Drug Paraphernalia

MONTEL WILLIAMS, the 54-year-old American talk show host, was yesterday (4th January 2011) detained by police for possessing drug paraphernalia after a 'pipe' was discovered in his luggage at an airport in Milwaukee, reports the Toronto Sun.
The television personality suffers from multiple sclerosis and is known to be a staunch medical marijuana activist. He was stopped at a security checkpoint at the General Mitchell International Airport after staff found a pipe often used for pot smoking in his bag. Williams was detained for a short period of time before paying a $484 citation and being released to continue his journey, according to the Milwaukee County Sherriff's Office. The talk show host has in the past admitted to using marijuana as a pain relief drug. He was first diagnosed with multiple sclerosis back in 1999 and later set up the non-profit research and education focused, 'MS Foundation'.
Williams was stopped at a Detroit airport in 2003 and fined $100 for possession of similar marijuana accessories. The host last appeared on television when he guest starred on the OPRAH WINFREY show on 10th November 2010.
