Apparently, the popo ain’t down for probiotics!
As we reported last year, former teen star Andrew Keegan started Full Circle Venice, a ‘non-denominational’ and ‘non-profit’ New Age temple located in Los Angeles.
However, it’s already starting controversy!
Last Friday, undercover agents with the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control raided a charity thrown by the spiritual center because they were selling illegal goods!
And what were these goods? Crack? Cocaine?
It turns out it was├óΓé¼┬ª
Yes, you heard us right. The 10 Things I Hate About You star was unlawfully selling Kombucha, which contains less than 1% alcohol.
While the hipster drink will most likely NOT get you crunk, it is classified by authorities as a beer and Full Circle was selling it without proper documentation!
Agent Will Salao says the organization was “cited for a misdemeanor for selling alcohol without a license” and explains:
“We’re a complaint-driven agency, so when someone notifies us about what might be an illegal activity, we respond to it.”
However, the 36-year-old actor is not buying this explanation!
“They may be a complaint-driven agency, but we’re an intention-driven organization and our intentions are pure├óΓé¼┬ª Kombucha is something we’d never imagine to be an illegal substance, and it’s frustrating the system has that perspective├óΓé¼┬ª We’re certainly taking full responsibility for co-creating the event. We try to put our best foot forward. We wanted to raise money for Sea Shepherd as a community; that’s how Full Circle operates.”
Full Circle spokesman Jason Dilts says the drink is used in the group’s spiritual practice.
Keegan further defended his point of view on Instagram by posting:
It’s a Kombucha REVOLUTION Meditation, massage sound healing and live art yet we got raided by the police and they confiscated our Kombucha? Such an abuse of tax payers money that 5 police officers would be sent to a temple???A video posted by keegan_drew (@keegan_drew) on May 9, 2015 at 12:35am PDT
Hopefully, Andrew will think twice before he
spills sells the tea!
