Exclamation Actor Brad Renfro Arrested in Heroin Drug Sting!!!

LOS ANGELES - Actor Brad Renfro was arrested in a sting operation after he allegedly tried to buy heroin near downtown's Skid Row, police said.

Renfro, 23, was booked for investigation of felony attempting to possess heroin, Detective Ron Hodges said.

"He was intending to buy real heroin from an undercover officer," Hodges said.

Renfro, the star of the 1994 film "The Client," was caught during a random sting operation Thursday that resulted in the arrests of 14 other suspects, Hodges said.

Renfro's lawyer did not immediately return a call for comment placed after business hours Thursday.

The actor was charged in 1998 with possession of cocaine and marijuana, but avoided jail time in a plea deal.

He was sentenced to two years' probation in January 2001 on charges of trying to steal a yacht in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

He was arrested in May 2001 and charged with underage drinking. The next year, he was charged with driving without a license and public intoxication. Both violated terms of his probation. Renfro was ordered into an alcohol rehabilitation program in March 2002.

His movie credits include "Ghost World," "Bully" and "Apt Pupil."

Yeah..he does have a history of drug abuse. I am just so surprised that he has not kicked the habit yet. The first time he got caught was over 7 years ago when he was 18

I'm not surprised either. He's been caught before.

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

That's actually a good mugshot compared to some other people's. Hahaha he looks super pissed but he's still a hottie. I really liked him in Apt Pupil and Bully.

So sad but like some of yawl said, it isn't a big surprise since he's been in trouble like this before.
