A court hearing for former child star Macaulay Culkin on his drug possession case has been delayed until April so that lawyers can work on a plea bargain, court officials said.

Culkin had been scheduled to appear in Oklahoma County District Court Thursday, but the hearing was moved to April 6. His lawyer, Catherine Burton, couldn’t be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon.

Culkin, best known for his role in the “Home Alone” movies, was arrested Sept. 17 during a traffic stop on Interstate 44 in Oklahoma City.

Police said officers found about 17 grams of marijuana and 16 milligrams of Xanax, a prescription drug used to treat depression and panic disorders. Culkin, 24, wasn’t driving the vehicle.

Oklahoma County prosecutors charged Culkin with misdemeanor counts of possession of marijuana and possession of the Xanax. He pleaded innocent to the charges in October.

Culkin was freed on $4,000 bail shortly after his arrest.
