Joel Madden Caught With Weed In His Hotel Room (REPORT)

Joel Madden, the Good Charlotte frontman and "The Voice Australia" coach who has been staying down under while filming the show, has reportedly been booted out of his hotel room in the Sydney area after New South Wales police seized a "small amount of plant matter believed to be cannabis" Sunday night, according to the Daily Mail.

The weed was originally found by a woman who was cleaning his room Sunday afternoon and continued to alert the authorities upon finding the substance. The officials, who executed a search warrant at 10:30 that evening, have not brought up charges against the 34-year-old just yet, but he was reportedly asked to vacate his serviced apartment at The Darling Hotel inside The Star casino complex, where he has been staying for the past two months.

The amount in possession was allegedly 5 grams, and while New South Wales law recommends only cautionary action for offenders found with less than 15 grams, the manager of the hotel complex told TMZ that "in Australia, there is zero tolerance for this no matter where you are."

Another spokesman for the hotel said Madden's celebrity status would not be a factor in their decision to eject him from the premise, as it is simply company policy to do so for any guest found with illegal substances.

"He was not afforded any special treatment, and he's moved out," the hotel official told the Daily Mail.
