Controversial filmmaker Oliver Stone has been arrested for drunk driving and possession of drugs in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The Oscar-winning director was stopped at a police checkpoint on Sunset Boulevard on Friday night, where cops allegedly found unspecified illegal substances during a search of his Mercedes car.

The legendary director, whose movies include Platoon, J.F.K. and Natural Born Killers, underwent a rehabilitation program in 1999 after admitting similar offences.
