American Idol Finalist C.J. Harris Arrested on Drug Charges
Former American Idol finalist C.J. Harris has been arrested in an apparent drug bust.
The 25-year-old was taken in for allegedly selling oxycodone and marijuana to an informant in Walker County, Alabama, and is being charged with three counts of felony distribution of a controlled substance. C.J.'s bail has been set at $90,000.
Eleven other people were arrested in connection with the bust, after the Walker County Sheriff's Office issued 14 drug-related warrants in a massive dealer roundup.
The guitar teacher and Jasper, Alabama native placed sixth on the reality singing contest's thirteenth season back in 2014. Caleb Johnson won the title that year.
The talented singer and guitar player had an intense, bluesy style during his performances on American Idol, with his most notable performance arguably being his cover of The Marshall Tucker Band's "Can't You See."
C.J.'s musical career was apparently known to the Sheriff's department, who labeled the singer in their statement on Facebook: "Curtis 'C.J.' Harris, age 25, of Jasper, a former American Idol contestant."
