Actor Tom Sizemore, convicted in 2003 of beating and threatening ex-girlfriend and former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss, was arrested Wednesday on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance.

Sizemore, 42, was booked at the sheriff’s station in the city of West Hollywood, police said. Bail was set at $10,000 and he was free as of Wednesday afternoon.

Syndicated entertainment TV show “Access Hollywood” reported that Sizemore was arrested at his home in the early morning, and that drug paraphernalia also were discovered. It was not immediately clear what the controlled substances were.

Earlier this year, prosecutors accused Sizemore of a parole violation after a positive test for methamphetamine. His attorneys argued the positive test was due to a prescription drug.

Best known for parts in movies like “Saving Private Ryan” and “Black Hawk Down,” Sizemore has been cast in the upcoming CBS television series “Dr. Vegas.”

A spokeswoman for Sizemore was not immediately available to comment on the arrest.
