Starsky & Hutch star Paul Michael Glaser is still fuming about his arrest on drug charges last year (12), branding the incident "ridiculous" and "absurd".

The veteran actor was taken into custody by police in Bowling Green, Kentucky in May, 2012 after guests staying at the Hilton Garden Inn hotel complained about the smell of marijuana on his floor.

Glaser, 70, has a California prescription for legal medical marijuana and he insists the police in Kentucky should not have taken the matter so seriously, telling Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper, "It was ridiculous, absurd. I've never been a drinker. I'm from the Sixties; I'm a doper, a pothead."
