The wayward son of rocker Rod Stewart has had drug charges against him dismissed, after completing a rehabilitation programme.

Sean Stewart was arrested outside actor Johnny Depp's VIPER ROOM club in Los Angeles for the illegal possession of prescription drug VICODIN in March 2002, and the 23-year-old has now finished the programme he began in January (03).

At a progress hearing yesterday (15DEC03), JUDGE ELDEN FOX said, "It appears you have completed the programme I ordered you on and have paid all the fees in this case."

Stewart was also sentenced to 90 days in jail last year (02) after pleading guilty to assault charges for attacking a man outside a Malibu, California restaurant in December 2001.
