What a dope. Um, XOXO.

Gossip Girl hunk Chace Crawford was arrested in his hometown of Plano, Texas, early this morning after cops allegedly found him in possession of marijuana.

Here's what happened:

The bust went down while Crawford and a buddy were chilling in a '03 Nissan outside of Ringo's Pub. (There's no word on the friend's identity, but it's safe to say it was not Mexican travel buddy Tony Romo.)

Police allege he had less than 2 ounces of pot on him. One source tells E! News it was just a single joint.

Crawford managed to spring himself just after 1 a.m., albeit not before leaving the Internet with that gift that keeps on giving, a celeb mug shot.

"He is not in custody," Plano police told E! News. "He already bailed out early this a.m."

The maximum sentence for misdemeanor pot-possession is 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.
