Tom Sizemore has been arrested for drug possession.

The 57-year-old actor was stopped by police in Burbank, California on January 5 because his car had expired registration tags and police officers found what they believed meth and heroin during a search of the vehicle, according to TMZ.

Police arrested Tom and a male passenger for misdemeanour possession and both posted bail before being released later that day.

Tom has had a number of brushes with the law in the past.

In 2016, he was arrested on domestic violence charges for allegedly attacking his girlfriend.

He was charged with intimate partner abuse, intimate partner battery and making terrorist threats.

A few weeks before that alleged incident, the actor accidentally mowed down a stuntman with a Cadillac Escalade while filming scenes for 'Shooter' in Santa Clara, Los Angeles.

Eight crew members tried to lift the heavy vehicle off the stuntman but were forced to call in a jack to free him.

The man, who had sustained a number of serious injuries, was later airlifted to hospital by helicopter.

The horrific incident was investigated by the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, which deals with work-related injuries.
