"One Day at a Time" actress Mackenzie Phillips was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, Sgt. Jim Holcomb of the LAX airport police told FOXNews.com.

At 1 p.m. ET, LAX airport police responded to Terminal 4, where Phillips was screened by the TSA. During a secondary screening process, Phillips was found to be in possession of what appeared to be a small amount of heroin and cocaine, Holcomb said.

Phillips was arrested on the felony charge of possession of a controlled substance and transported to the airport police station for further investigation.

Phillips, 48, has had a long history of drug abuse.
