I know this is old, but I didn't know how many people knew about it:
NEW YORK (CNN) -- Benjamin Curtis, better known as the "Dell Dude" from the computer company's television commercials, was arrested Sunday while he allegedly attempted to buy marijuana on Manhattan's Lower East Side.
Curtis is in custody while awaiting arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court Monday, said a spokesman for the Manhattan district attorney's office. The time of the arraignment has not yet been determined.
Curtis was arrested at 11:30 p.m. Sunday on the corner of Ludlow and Rivington streets and charged with criminal possession of marijuana when an officer observed him making the purchase, said a police spokesman.
Police said he was buying "a small bag" and was not being charged with intent to distribute.
Curtis' agent, Bonnie Schumofsky, refused to comment on the arrest.
Curtis, 22, was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and is enrolled at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, according to Dell's Web site.
He gained national recognition as "Steven," a hip teenager who convinces his parents, his friends' parents and random people at the mall to buy computers from Dell.
The ad campaign was hugely successful for Dell, featuring Curtis' memorable catch phrase, "Dude, you're getting a Dell!"
