MANGHAM, La. — Police in Louisiana say actor and musician Corey Feldman has been charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession and driving with a suspended license after his tour bus was pulled over for speeding over the weekend.
Mangham, Louisiana, police say they pulled over a recreational vehicle driven by Feldman on Saturday and took him to a police station after discovering his license was suspended. Police say an officer at the station smelled marijuana and the drug was found in the RV following a search.
Police say Feldman was released after paying a fine.
Feldman says on Twitter Sunday he had no marijuana on him and faced a charge only because it was his vehicle. He says a member of his crew had medicinal marijuana.
Just last week, Feldman sent a series of tweets about being abused in Hollywood when he was younger.
In the tweets, he mentioned that he would not disclose the names of his abuser, or anyone elses — and added that he would “love others to come forward as there are many other witnesses to the crimes I have addressed. Still not one of my peers has offered anything up in a decade”.
The 46-year-old former child actor now tours with his band, Corey Feldman & The Angels.
