Actor Vince Colosimo has been fined $1000 for possessing the drug ice.

Colosimo, 50, was found to have the drug after police intercepted his blue Saab in inner Melbourne on September 26.

The Underbelly star fronted Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on the drug possession charge on Friday, and was fined $1000 on the condition he is of good behaviour for one year or risk having the charge reinstated.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph after he was charged, Colsimo said the incident had been a massive ‘wake-up call.’


“Some people make mistakes, I did, and this has been a wake-up call,” the father-of-two admitted. “I have two beautiful children, whom I love more than anything in the world, and I want to be a good role model for them.”

Adding: “They, and acting, are my two biggest loves.”
