Actor Robert Downey Jr., who was released from prison three months ago for drug-related charges, was arrested again for drug-related charges over the weekend, Reuters reports.

The 35-year-old Downey, who is a recent regular on the Fox legal-eagle comedy "Ally McBeal," was arrested by police at a hotel room at the Merv Griffin Resort in Palm Springs, Calif., for possession of cocaine and methamphetamine.

The actor was released early Sunday morning on $15,000 bail, according to the report.

The "Less Than Zero" actor has been battling substance abuse over the years. In June 1999, he was sent to California State Prison in Corcoran for violating his probation and was released on $5,000 bail last August.
