Tom Sizemore pleaded not guilty to allegations that he had heroin in his possession when he was pulled over by cops earlier this month, exclusively confirmed.

The Saving Private Ryan star did not appear at his arraignment in Burbank Court on Thursday, Jan. 31, but his attorney, Mark McBride, entered not guilty pleas for Sizemore related to his four misdemeanor counts that include possession of heroin and possession of a controlled substance.

Sizemore, 57, was ordered to return to court on Feb. 6 for a pretrial hearing.

Burbank Police arrested the actor, along with another man, Kevin Oberlin, during a traffic stop on Jan. 5. Officials stopped the actor because his Mercedes-Benz E350 did not have a front license plate and the registration tag for the rear license plate was expired.

"Police officers ultimately searched the vehicle and located illegal drugs suspected of being methamphetamine and heroin," according to Burbank Police officials. "There was also drug paraphernalia found in the car."

Both Sizemore and Oberlin were arrested and booked in Burbank City Jail for possession of drugs and were later charged by the Burbank City Attorney's Office on Jan. 10.

Oberlin did not appear in court on Thursday, so a bench warrant in the amount of $26,000 was issued for his arrest, according to court records.

Sizemore remained out on $1,000 bail.
