'American Idol' finalist arrested in drug sweep

Curtis "C.J." Harris is probably singing the blues right now.

The "American Idol" finalist was arrested Thursday in Alabama as part of a drug sweep.

Harris. 25, was charged with three counts of distribution of a controlled substance. He's accused of selling oxycodone, Xanax and marijuana.

In all, 18 warrants were executed in the roundup, which was conducted by the Walker County Sheriff's Office narcotics and SWAT divisions.

Harris competed on Season 13 of the Fox series, which aired in 2014.

He ultimately took sixth place in the season, with Caleb Johnson winning the competition and Jena Irene nabbing runner-up status.
