In 1998, Bob was arrested when he signed for a FedEx delivery of 30 grams of marijuana. Police spent more than two hours searching his home and reportedly confiscated two marijuana pipes and several more grams of pot. Reports at the time suggested that Denver's Gilligan's Island co-star, Dawn Wells, had arranged the shipment, his checkbook included several suspicious payments to Wells, and prosecutors were pressuring him to name Wells as his supplier. Instead, Bob testified that "some crazy fan must have sent it." He was given six months probation.
