OKLAHOMA CITY – Prosecutors charged former child star Macaulay Culkin (search) with two misdemeanor drug counts Monday in connection with a traffic stop where police found marijuana and prescription drugs.
Culkin, best known for his role in the "Home Alone" (search) movies, was arrested Friday while traveling with a friend along Interstate 44 in Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma County District Attorney Wes Lane said Culkin was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Lane said his office would insist that the actor receive drug treatment as part of any plea agreement.
No court date has been set.
Police found just over a half ounce of marijuana and several Xanax tablets, prescription medication used to treat depression and panic disorders, in a rental car driven by Brett M. Tabisel, 22, of New York City. Tabisel had been pulled over for speeding and making an improper lane change, according to a police report.
Culkin, 24, of New York City, was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail and released on $4,000 bond.
