Dream Hotel owner Vikran Chatwal has been arrested in Fort Lauderdale for trying to board a plane with oodles of drugs, TMZ reported.

The bust went down at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport after a TSA search of Chatwal and his bag uncovered cocaine, heroin and prescription pills, according to a police report seen by TMZ.

Chatwal admitted to cops that he bought the drugs and was booked on one count of trafficking and seven counts of possession; he did not respond to TMZ’s requests for comment.

The hotelier is close friends with Lindsay Lohan, who was arrested last year outside his Dream Hotel at 355 West 16th Street Lohan reportedly moved to Tribeca in late summer. [TMZ] –Hayley Kaplan
