UPDATE: Sizemore posted bail and was released around 9:15 am PT Tuesday.
Tom Sizemore was just getting his once celebrated Hollywood career back on track when his latest arrest happened early Tuesday in Los Angeles.
A rep for the troubled actor told RadarOnline.com that the star of such critically acclaimed films as Saving Private Ryan and Blackhawk Down had just returned to Los Angeles from Hawaii, where he had been filming several episodes for the second season of the hit CBS drama Hawaii Five-O.
As RadarOnline.com was first to report, Sizemore, 49, was taken into custody at an apartment building near downtown L.A. around 1:15 am PT and was booked at 3 am PT for an outstanding warrant.
Authorities tell us they went to the apartment building early Tuesday as part of an ongoing drug investigation; Sizemore was there, and when police ran his record, they found an outstanding battery warrant, and immediately took him into custody.
Sizemore’s rep told us he didn’t know who lived at the apartment.
He’s currently being held on $26,000 bail.
Sizemore has a history of legal troubles: in 2003, he was convicted of domestic violence charges in connection with accusations he hit his then-girlfriend, former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss and in 2007, he was convicted of drug charges.
In 2010, he appeared on the third season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew and later appeared on Sober House.
