Sizemore Warned 'Get Clean Or Die

A Los Angeles judge has warned actor TOM SIZEMORE he will die if he fails to beat his addiction to the drug methamphetamine.

The BLACK HAWK DOWN star appeared at a court hearing yesterday (24FEB05), charged with possession of the drug and violation of probation for domestic violence towards his former fiancee HEIDI FLEISS in 2003.

He faces four years in prison when he is sentenced next month (MAR05), but Superior Court Judge ANTONIO BARRETO JR told Sizemore he faces a worse fate than jail.

Judge Barreto Jr told the actor he was "out of control and cannot stop. Meth has consumed any will he may have had to stop.

"There are two ways for you to go. One is to recover. The other is to die."

The court heard Sizemore, 43, had failed court-imposed drug tests seven times in just a month, while living in a drug treatment centre. On one occasion he was caught trying to use a prosthetic penis filled with a clean urine sample to fake the results.

Prosecutors appealed for Sizemore to be taken into custody until he is sentenced on 24 March, a request the judge rejected.
