Saving Private Ryan star Tom Sizemore 'arrested for a DUI, controlled substance'


Tom Sizemore has been arrested for a DUI and being in possession of a controlled substance, it has been claimed.

The 58-year-old actor, who has appeared in major films such as Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down, was taken in on Thursday morning at 2:30 AM in Glendale, California, according to TMZ.

When police searched the Hollywood vet, they allegedly found narcotics on him.

Tom was pulled over for a traffic violation. That is when officers noticed that he was under the influence and they tested him.

This new arrest could cause bigger problems for the actor because of a prior plea deal he had, according to the site. 

In early 2019 he was arrested for being on drugs in Burbank, California. Police allegedly found meth and heroin in his car.

The star was jailed along with a male passenger for misdemeanor possession, TMZ reported at the time.

He pulled over by police in his Mercedes E350 over a missing front license plate and expired registration tags.

Police in Burbank then allegedly found the drugs, thought to be meth and heroin, in the vehicle.

But he got a break with a plea deal that kept him out of jail if he agreed to stay off drugs. 

With this new arrest, he seems to have violated his plea deal which means he could serve time in jail. 

Tom has a track record of legal issues. 

Sizemore was also arrested for domestic violence in 2016. 

In May 2018 a Utah woman sued the actor for $3 million over claims he groped her during a movie set photo shoot when she was just 11.

The lawsuit says the 2003 incident, which allegedly occurred during production of the movie Natural Born Killers, left her with post-traumatic stress and drug and alcohol addiction.

Sizemore denied the ‘highly disturbing’ allegation when it surfaced, saying he would never inappropriately touch a child.

He called the claims surrounding the alleged incident in 2003 ‘simply false’ and said he was desperate to ‘clear my name’.

Sizemore has faced a very public battle with drug addiction and run-ins with the police.

But in May 2017 he told the DailyMail.com he was ‘fit, healthy and approaching four years sober’.

He recalled seeing his successful acting career – starring alongside Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro, Woody Harrelson and Al Pacino – crumble around him, his bank balance and the trappings of fame vanish overnight.

The actor told how he hit rock bottom when forced to squat for two years in a building with no electricity or running water, whiling away the days smoking crystal meth.

Speaking in 2017 he said: ‘My life’s gotten a lot better, it’s been a real chronicle, but I’ve got a long history of substance abuse, I was in a really bad place.

‘And I’m coming up on four years sober, it was really difficult, the first two years were miserable I thought I’d never smile again.

‘Drugs are a progressive disease, if I do drugs again I go right back to where I was before, I was ineffectual, I could barely get dressed, I was hopeless.’

Over the years he has been in and out of rehab several times and was arrested in 2007 and 2009 for drug-related charges, spending 16 months in total in prison.

He was sentenced to six months in jail for beating up his former girlfriend, the one-time ‘Hollywood Madam,’ Heidi Fleiss.

The star was even caught attempting to fake a drug urine test using a prosthetic penis known as a Whizzinator.

While he seemed to get his life back on track after the show, two videos of the troubled actor smoking drugs emerged.

A representative for Sizemore has been contacted for comment.
