Good Charlotte. Bad hotel guest.

TMZ insiders confirm that Joel Madden was given the boot on Sunday from his hotel in Sydney because officials found marijuana in his room.

It’s unclear what prompted the search, but a police report states that officers swept the musician’s room around 10:30 and recovered a “small amount of plant matter believed to be cannabis.”

The manager of the Darling Hotel then flat out told TMZ that Madden was “ejected” due to traces of this drug found in his room.

“In Australia there is a 0 tolerance for this no matter where you are,” said the executive.

In related news, Snoop Lion and Miley Cyrus just canceled their planned trip to the country. Just kidding.

Madden, of course, is the husband of Nicole Richie.
