'The Chi' Star Sonja Sohn Arrested for Cocaine Possession

By

The Chi star Sonja Sohn was arrested on suspicion of drug possession in North Carolina on July 21. Per TMZ, the actress-activist was charged with cocaine possession, possession of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

Sonja, who starred on The Wire from 2002 to 2008, was reportedly released after posting $1,500 bail shortly after her arrest. Her arraignment is scheduled for July 23. In the meantime, we've got the answers to all your pressing questions.

Does this mean Sonja Sohn is not returning to The Chi?

Sonja plays Laverne, the mother of Brandon (Jason Mitchell) and Coogie (Jahking Guillory) on The Chi, a Showtime original series. She appeared in nine episodes of the show's first season but did not appear in season two. 

The Chi has been renewed for Season 3 by Showtime, but Sonja's future on Lena Waithe's popular show remains uncertain.
