The View Frontman Convicted Of Drug Charge

Scottish rocker KYLE FALCONER has been fined GBP1,000 ($1,900) for possession of cocaine, wrecking his band THE VIEW's plans to conquer America. Falconer, 19, was arrested after police found him in possession of 2.5 grams of cocaine after the band performed in Dundee last August (06). The frontman raced to Dundee Sheriff's Court after picking up an NME Award in London last night (01MAR07). His solicitor pleaded for an absolute discharge pointing out to the court a drug conviction would seriously harm the group's plans to tour the North America - dates in the US and Canada have already been cancelled, because of the charges. Falconer's solicitor said, "A conviction for drugs means it is next to impossible to gain entry to the USA. The band was due to commence a multi-million pound tour of the US, which had to be cancelled because of visa difficulties." But the plea was unsuccessful and Falconer was convicted.
