Courtesy Oklahoma County Sheriff's Dept Culkin Pleads Not Guilty
October 13, 2004

MACAULAY CULKIN appeared in court on Wednesday to plead not guilty after being charged with two misdemeanor drug counts by Oklahoma City prosecutors. According to the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office, the star was a passenger in a friend's car when the two were stopped for speeding along Interstate 44 in Oklahoma City. Culkin was booked on suspicion of possession of marijuana and unauthorized prescription medication. Authorities say they found approximately 17.3 grams of weed, eight white Xanax pills (2 mg each) and 16 round white pills identified as Clonazepam, about 2 mg each, in a clear plastic baggie. Both Culkin and his friend were described by the arresting officers as very cooperative. The former child star was released on $4,000 bail a few hours after his arrest. An official Web site for the County Sheriff's Office shows a mugshot of the 24-year-old, best known for his childhood role in the box-office smash 'Home Alone.' Culkin is expected back in court on December 2.

Singer Isley Indicted for Tax Evasion

LOS ANGELES - R&B singer Ronald Isley is in tax trouble again. Isley has been indicted for evading taxes from 1997 to 2002 by allegedly depositing his dead brother's royalty checks, buying personal cars using a business account and using cash to keep payments to band members off the books, authorities said Thursday.

A federal grand jury returned the indictment Wednesday afternoon, the Internal Revenue Service (news - web sites) said in a statement.

Isley, 63, is charged with five counts of tax evasion and one count of failing to file an income tax return.

The IRS said the singer, who has homes in Los Angeles and St. Louis, deposited royalty checks for his own use that had been issued to other members of the Isley Brothers, including his dead brother, O'Kelly.

He also required that half of his guaranteed tour fees be paid in cash on the day of each performance. He then paid musicians in cash, according to the indictment.

Isley failed to pay taxes numerous times in the past three decades and declared bankruptcy after the IRS seized his yacht, cars and other property in 1997. He was out of bankruptcy four years later, but then allegedly did not file tax returns for the years 1997 to 2001 and in 2002 did not sign his return and failed to pay taxes due.

Isley's latest albums, released last year, were a collaboration with Burt Bacharach (news) titled "Here I Am" and the Grammy-nominated Isley Brothers CD "Body Kiss."
