David Oliver Willis, who repeatedly appeared on “American Idol,” has been arrested, after police found LSD in his car … TMZ has learned.
According to docs obtained by TMZ … David was pulled over last Friday in Lake County Florida for a malfunctioning headlight.
The officer says they could smell marijuana billowing from the car and proceeded to search the vehicle. Cops say they found a grinder and baggies containing several small squares of paper that tested positive for LSD.
Officers say David admitted to smoking weed with a friend prior to driving … but claimed the LSD did not belong to him.
Because he was the only person in the vehicle during the stop, officers arrested Willis and booked him for possession of a controlled substance (LSD) … a third-degree felony. He’s due back in court next month.
As you might recall, David has had a long run with “American Idol.” He appeared on season 12, season 13, and he came back for season 14.
He became a quarterfinalist his first season.
