Police seized illicit drugs inside the Los Angeles home of Tom Sizemore, who is currently on probation for previous scuffles with the law, the actor’s attorney has confirmed to the New York Post.
In a raid on Nov. 24, the paper says, authorities discovered small amounts of crystal methamphetamine in Sizemore’s bedroom and heroin in a woman’s purse in his car, according to defense and prosecution attorneys.
Sizemore’s probation stems from his 2003 conviction for abusing his two ex-girlfriends, onetime “Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss and Brooke Ford. He was sentenced to six months in jail and ordered to complete a residential drug rehab program for an admitted addiction to crystal meth.
Sizemore, 43, was said to be in tears on Monday when he faced the judge and declared he was working hard to get sober. His attorney, Mike Rovell, said the Black Hawk Down and Saving Private Ryan actor was in a drug rehab retreat when the Thanksgiving week raid took place.
Sizemore’s manager, Bob De Brino, is quoted in the Post as saying: “All he wants to do is move on with his life and make movies.”
