Brad Renfro, of The Client and Apt Pupil, was arrested and charged Wednesday in his hometown of Knoxville, Tenn., for underage drinking, according to The Associated Press. Already on probation in Florida for trying to steal a yacht, the 18-year-old actor reportedly admitted that he had been drinking early Wednesday after the car he was riding in was stopped for a minor traffic violation. He was arrested and taken into custody, but was later released on $500 bond, Knox County Sheriff's Department spokesman Mike Evans told AP. In January, Renfro was sentenced to two-years probation and ordered to pay more than $4,000 for repairs to a yacht that he tried to steal in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
