Alexa Curtin, the daughter of Real Housewives of Orange County alum Lynne Curtin, is facing two misdemeanor drug charges after being arrested earlier this month, PEOPLE can confirm.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Curtin, 26, was arrested for possession of Xanax and drug paraphernalia on Jan. 5 by the Irvine Police Department.

Curtin was released from Orange County Jail the next day at 11:33 a.m., after posting bond, according to online jail records. When she was booked, Curtin listed her occupation as unemployed.

She was charged with two misdemeanor drug charges — possession of a controlled substance and possession of controlled substance drug paraphernalia — on Jan. 16, a spokesperson for the Orange County District Attorney’s office confirms to PEOPLE.

She is scheduled to be arraigned in court on March 4.

PEOPLE is out to Lynne’s rep for comment. The Irvine Police Department did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

This is not the first time in recent months that Curtin has faced legal trouble.

According to The Blast, Curtin was charged with driving under the influence in April, and with possession of drug paraphernalia in February, after police found items allegedly used to smoke heroin.

She was previously charged with two misdemeanors — possession of a controlled substance and possession of controlled substance paraphernalia — after being allegedly found with drugs in her car in June 2016.

In August, she spent four days in jail and was taken to court to enter a plea for the three separate criminal cases filed against her: for possession of a controlled substance paraphernalia, vandalism, petty theft and driving under the influence of a drug, the outlet reported.

She reportedly pled not guilty to all charges and posted a $5,000 bond.

In October, a judge issued a warrant for her arrest after she skipped a court hearing related to the three separate criminal cases — including her August arrest for drug-related warrants — according to the outlet, and her previous bond of $5,000 was forfeited.
