Crystal-like rocks and a glass pipe with suspected methamphetamine residue were in the singer’s belongings, according to court documents.

The crystal-like substances tested presumptive positive for meth and the plant substance tested presumptive positive for pot, according to the documents.

Elliman-Alexander, 65, is charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance on board an aircraft, a first-degree felony.

The two were released on $10,000 personal recognizance bonds, but they can’t leave Guam without permission from the court. They also can’t go to any clubs or bars.

Elliman-Alexander’s benefit concert for Mount Carmel School will continue as planned. It will be on Saturday at Dusit Thani Guam Resort.

Elliman-Alexander performed on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, which won a Grammy for album of the year in 1978.
