Vikram Chatwal Arrested For Cocaine, Heroin, Xanax, Horse Tranq Possession

April 4, 2013

Hotel owner and possible one-time Lindsay Lohan boy toy Vikram Chatwal was arrested at a Florida airport for drug possession ... like a lot of different drugs.

According to the police report, Chatwal, who was also once linked to Padma Lakshmi, tried to board with cocaine, marijuana and prescription pills.

Always an intelligent move, Vik.

Chatwal, 41, owns New York City's Dream Hotel, a popular spot with celebrities such as Lohan, who got arrested after a hit-and-run there last year.

She has not been charged. Chatwal, who she has been cozy with in the past, may not be so lucky in this drug case, thanks to what TSA found on him.

As he tried to get on an airplane in Ft. Lauderdale, security discovered a treasure trove of items on his person, leading you to wonder why on earth:

  1. Somebody needs all of that at once
  2. Why they'd try to get it on a plane

He was booked on one count of trafficking (six grams of heroin) and seven counts of possession for cocaine, heroin, marijuana and various other drugs.

A search of Vikram Chatwal's carry-on bag apparently revealed several different types of loose white pills that appeared to be controlled substances.

While attempting to identify the pills, the TSA found a small piece of white plastic wrap in the hotel owner's jacket pocket that tested positive for cocaine.

Chatwal was then arrested by Broward County Sheriff's Office.

A further search found a clear bag containing about six grams of heroin hidden in the crotch of his pants ... plus Xanax, muscle relaxants, sedatives and a horse tranq.

Chatwal did not have prescriptions for any of these drugs.

"The arrestee provided a statement to narcotics detectives admitting possessing and purchasing controlled substances illegally," wrote Officer Carmen Hunsinger.
