Corey Feldman took to Twitter on Sunday, October 22, to set the record straight after reports surfaced that he’d been arrested for marijuana possession.
The former child star, 46, was due to perform with his band in Louisiana when his bus was pulled over for speeding in Mangham on Saturday, October 21, according to The News-Star.
Police Chief Perry Fleming told the newspaper that The Goonies alum was driving on a suspended license and he was taken in by police after an officer noticed the smell of marijuana and searched the bus.
Feldman was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana, driving under suspension and speeding and paid a fine of $640 instead of posting bond. Four other members of his group were booked on drug charges.
4 THE RECORD, I WAS NOT ARRESTED OR PUT IN JAIL,” the Stand By Me star wrote in a series of tweets on Sunday.
