Culkin Arrested On Drugs Charges

Former child actor MACAULAY CULKIN has been arrested and jailed in America on drug possession charges.

Police have confirmed the 24-year-old HOME ALONE star was imprisoned on charges of possessing marijuana and a dangerous controlled substance without a prescription.

He and another man were taken in by cops after the car they were travelling in was pulled over in Oklahoma City on Friday (17SEP04). Culkin was later released after paying a $4,000 (GBP2,220) bond.

Among the substances found in the vehicle - in which Culkin was a passenger - was a 17 gram (0.6 ounce) batch of marijuana and 16 milligrams of prescription medicines Xanex and Clonzebam used to control anxiety and seizures.

Police also found $3,000 (GBP1,660) in a bag that Culkin said belonged to him.

Officers leapt into action when they noticed a car driving at 112 kilometres per hour (70 miles per hour) in a 96 kilometres per hour (60 miles per hour) speed zone and for making an improper lane change.

A police statement says, "Culkin was transported to the Oklahoma County Jail and booked on the state charges of possession of a controlled dangerous substance without a prescription, possession of marijuana, and a municipal charge of possession of marijuana."
