Former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler has been arrested for alleged drug possession in Hollywood.

Los Angeles police spokesman Richard French says the 43-year-old Adler was arrested around 4 a.m. (0800 GMT) Friday by officers called to a home where a man reportedly was creating a disturbance and refusing to leave.

Adler was booked for investigation of possessing narcotics, being under the influence and for an outstanding warrant. He was jailed on $45,000 bail.

Adler has a long history of drug use. He performed on the early Guns N' Roses albums but was later fired.
