Tom Sizemore - Tom Sizemore Wins Early End To Probation
Actor Tom Sizemore has been taken off probation early after proving his innocence following an arrest in California last month (Sep11).
The Saving Private Ryan star received a visit from Los Angeles police in the early hours of 20 September (11) after an acquaintance reportedly stole a car and claimed he was living at Sizemore's apartment.
But when cops ran a check on the actor's driving licence, they discovered Sizemore was a wanted man for failing to complete his community service hours stemming from a 2009 misdemeanour for spousal battery. He was taken into custody and later released on bail.
Sizemore maintained his innocence throughout the arrest, blaming the community service mix-up on a clerical mistake, and he has now been proved right - a judge corrected the error in court on Friday (07Oct11) and even ended the star's probation a year-and-a-half early, according to Tmz.com.
The actor's new lawyer, Kent Schaffer, presented proof of Sizemore's logged volunteer hours, prompting the judge to grant Sizemore the legal victory.
