On January 14, 2006, actor and singer Leif Garrett, 44, was arrested on a Los Angeles subway platform for allegedly not having a ticket. Authorities found Heroin in his possession and held him without bail after discovering a warrant for his arrest for violating probation from a previous cocaine arrest.

On May 11, 2006, Garrett was sentenced to three years' probation and a 90-day jail sentence after he failed to complete a court-ordered live-in drug rehabilitation program.
