LOS ANGELES Jan 18, 2006 Leif Garrett, a 1970s singing teen idol, was charged Wednesday with possessing heroin after he was arrested for allegedly trying to ride the subway without a ticket.

Garrett, 44, also was charged with fare evasion.

If convicted, he probably would avoid jail time under a law that sends some convicted drug users to treatment, authorities said.

Garrett was arrested by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies Saturday evening on the platform of the Pershing Square Red Line station downtown for allegedly not having a ticket to ride the train.

Deputies then allegedly found suspected narcotics on the musician-actor, officials said.

He was held without bail for allegedly violating terms of his probation for a previous drug offense. He pleaded guilty in March to attempted possession of cocaine-based narcotics and was placed on probation.

Garrett has appeared in three-dozen films, mostly in the 1970s and 1980s, and has released 10 music albums.

In 1979, he rear-ended another car while driving a Porsche, leaving his passenger disabled.

Wasn't he married to Kristy McNichol for a while?

44??? Wasn't he just on the TV Show, Family?

Factoid that may only interest me - I never knew LA had a subway.

Dude has 9 lives, I'm sure of it. He looks like he got dragged behind the train.

IMDB sez (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0308161) his most recent TV guest appearance was on Elimidate. I feel sorry for any contestant who dated him on that show.

My favorite entry on Leif's IMDB page -

"The Road to Freedom: L. Ron Hubbard and Friends"

I caught that too.

And really, what's more surprising:

Sevenites pop star jacked up on drugs?

or

LA embraces public transportation?

He'll probably get off light, you know, visiting high schools and talking about the dangers of riding the subway without a ticket.

His behind the music was the best though, it had that great moment with the guy he almost killed.

Wow. Nice blood in the mugshot. You'd think the LAPD would have the sense to clean him up, after beating the crap out of him.

Quick, who can name the most child actors in this picture without looking:

Wow...he looks pretty scary!

The teen picture cracked me up! My Aunt (she is only 2 years older than me) had that same poster of him. I think until about 2 years ago it was still up on the wall in her old room at my grandmothers. If I remember right, he daughter (12 at the time) finally took it down because she said it gave here the creeps when she spent the night there:lol: As for me...I was in love with Shawn Cassidy:)
