Paul Michael Glaser is not a police officer, but he played one on TV.
Hopefully that small-screen training will help him fight a drug charge. Per the Bowling Green, Ky., Daily News, the 69-year-old actor pleaded not guilty to possession of marijuana and a pipe.
Glaser was cited May 10 after an anonymous complaint of "a person named 'Paul Glaser' smoking marijuana near the elevators," according to a BGPD citation.
Per the Daily News, an officer found a pipe and burnt marijuana residue in Glaser's hotel room. According to a police citation, the actor told authorities the substance was medical marijuana that was legally prescribed to him in California.
Glaser is best known for his role as police detective David Michael Starsky on "Starsky and Hutch" from 1975 to 1979.
