The West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin, who was arrested April 15 on suspicion of carrying drugs, was charged Monday with possessing hallucinogenic mushrooms, rock cocaine and marijuana, prosecutors said. He was arrested at Burbank Airport after security officers reportedly found a small bag containing suspected drugs in his carry-on luggage. Los Angeles County District Attorney's spokesperson Sandi Gibbons said pieces of cocaine base were found in the bag as a result of chemical tests. Sorkin, 39, is currently free on $10,000 bail.
