Tom Sizemore was arrested in Burbank when police found drugs in his car during a traffic stop, RadarOnline.com has confirmed. Cops stopped the Saving Private Ryan actor, 57, on Saturday, January 5, because his Mercedes-Benz E350 did not have a front license plate and the registration tag for the rear license plate was expired.
But things got worse for Sizemore as the police arrest log stated, "Consent search of vehicle revealed various illegal narcotics." The drugs were reportedly believed to be methamphetamine and heroin. Sizemore's passenger in the car was also arrested for suspicion of misdemeanor possession.
Both men posted bail and were released. Sizemore has had well-publicized brushes with the law and drug issues for years. In 2003, he was sentenced to six months in jail for beating up his then-girlfriend, Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss.
Sgt. Derek Green of the Burbank Police Department told Radar, "Police officers ultimately searched the vehicle and located illegal drugs suspected of being methamphetamine and heroin. There was also drug paraphernalia found in the car.
"The investigation led to the arrests of both Sizemore and the passenger, who was identified as Kevin Oberlin, a 46-year-old man from Woodland Hills. Both Sizemore and Oberlin were booked into the Burbank City Jail for possession of illegal drugs. Both were released from custody after posting bond. The case is pending review by the Burbank City Attorney’s Office," St. Green said in a statement.
Radar revealed in fall 2018 that Sizemore had had an epic meltdown on the set of his film El Coyote.
According to an insider, Sizemore landed in Mesa, Arizona to begin filming on Wednesday, September 19, but things quickly turned sour when the actor phoned into the studio to let them know he was going to the hospital for "abdominal pains." "We get a call from Tom, he’s panicked," the source told Radar. "He says I need to go to the hospital…and people freaked out."
At the hospital, Sizemore was allegedly administered morphine and was later given a prescription for the powerful drug. However, the source claimed the troubled actor couldn’t even afford the $350 copay and had to have his costar, Michael Saquella, spot him the cash! The insider said when execs considered taking him off the project, Sizemore broke down into tears. "He started crying hysterically and begging for them not to send him home," the insider said.
