LOS ANGELES (AP) - Former 1970s teen idol Leif Garrett has been
released from jail on a charge he carried heroin into a Los Angeles
Los Angeles County sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore says the
actor and singer was arrested late Monday for heroin possession and
released on bond Wednesday.
Whitmore says the 48-year-old was shaking and sweating.
Whitmore says Garrett denied having drugs at first and allowed
them to search him, then acknowledged that he had black tar heroin
in his shoe.
Garrett has a history of drug use, including a 2006 arrest at
another Los Angeles subway stop for having heroin.
He is due back in court Feb. 24.
It was not immediately clear if Garrett had an attorney.
