He was placed on probation, but according to exclusive documents obtained by, Taylor "completed two random screenings" on July 6 and July 13, 2016, and failed the "THC50" test, which is a test for marijuana.

Taylor and Chance's father, Kenneth, is a former aide to President Obama and to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

After Taylor's marijuana violations, the Social Service Department requested that he "be screened instanter" moving forward, which means he will get no advance warning of future tests. He was declared in compliance with his probation, and the case was continued until February 2017.
