BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Zachary Gross — an FAU Communications student — may soon be practicing the art of “crisis communication” as he tries to explain his arrest Wednesday for cocaine.

The 20-year-old Boca Raton resident reveals on his LinkedIN page that he is an intern at an area communications firm that specializes in media relations and crisis communication. Gross was also charged with liquor possession by someone under the age of 21.

Gross was arrested during a traffic stop by the Boca Raton Police Department and booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 2:49pm. He was released at 4:08 this morning on $3,000 bond. Gross had his driving privilege suspended by the State — briefly — last year after failing to pay a traffic ticket. It was reinstated but then suspended again in January, according to court records, after Gross failed to pay the fine from a seatbelt violation.
