    Remember Teeny Bop Idol Leif Garrett?

    He just got arrested. Check out this mug shot....



    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 his most recent TV guest appearance was on Elimidate. I feel sorry for any contestant who dated him on that show.

    Inducing a classic pop culture reference on Family Guy in 2000.

    My favorite entry on Leif's IMDB page -

    "The Road to Freedom: L. Ron Hubbard and Friends"
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I caught that too.

    And really, what's more surprising:

    Sevenites pop star jacked up on drugs?

    or

    LA embraces public transportation?

    How many chances can this guy get? Seems he's been in and out of trouble his entire life.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    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.
