Tom Sizemore facing jail after being charged with drug possession – report

Tom Sizemore could spend up to a year in jail after reportedly being charged with drug possession.
According to editors at TMZ, the troubled actor – who has had roles in Heat, Saving Private Ryan, and the recent reboot of Twin Peaks – was charged by the Burbank City Attorney with two counts of possession of heroin, and two counts of possession of medication without a prescription, following his arrest in Burbank, Los Angeles, earlier this month (Jan19).
The 57-year-old’s vehicle was missing a front number plate and had expired registration tags, according to TMZ.com. During the stop, officers searched Sizemore’s Mercedes and found drugs – believed to be meth and heroin – in the car.
All four charges are misdemeanours, so the actor won’t go to prison if convicted. However, he’s facing incarceration in jail, designed to hold inmates awaiting trial or serving a short sentence, for up to a year. In addition to being locked up he could also be subject to a $1,000 (£778) fine.
Police officers arrested the actor, along with a male passenger, but both men posted bail and were released later the same day.
A rep for Sizemore has yet to comment.
