Tom Sizemore Charged with Heroin Possession
Actor Tom Sizemore, known for his role in “Saving Private Ryan,” is currently facing the possibility of a one year prison sentence. Sizemore was charged with two counts of heroin possession and two counts of possession of medication without a prescription. The arrest took place on January 5, 2019, when Sizemore was pulled over by the Burbank Police Department for expired registration tags and a missing front license plate. During the routine stop, Sizemore gave officers consent to search his vehicle, at which time they discovered the illicit drugs, which issued the warrant for arrest.
Sizemore’s four charges are all misdemeanors. However, one year of incarceration paired with a $1,000 fine is on the table, if convicted. Fortunately for Sizemore, conviction of these charges will not result in prison time, but rather one year confinement in the Burbank County jail.
Substance abuse and drug addiction is a notorious problem which is regularly seen in Hollywood. Although excessive use of drugs and alcohol is considered the norm among people with celebrity status, the disease of addiction affects people from all walks of life, all across the country. It does not matter who you are or how powerful you are, drug abuse will eventually catch up with you. For some people, such as Sizemore, this may mean legal consequences. For others, however, this usually means experiencing a downward spiral, causing mass destruction and even death.
