History has not been kind to child stars. Let’s just say that they haven’t been the luckiest bunch. The kid from Home Alone has fallen out of Hollywood and into his own scene of drugs. Meanwhile, Steve Weiss from The Might Ducks franchise can’t seem to catch a break. Only five days after being released from prison for petty theft, he was once again arrested…this time for meth! Yup, chubby little Goldberg from The Might Ducks just got nabbed for methamphetamine.
Last month, Weiss was sentenced to 150 days for petty theft. But he only spent 12 days behind bars “due to overcrowding.” Now, TMZ is reporting that Weiss got arrested once again after spending only five days on the outside. He reportedly got nabbed for meth at around 2:30 P.M. on Wednesday. He is being held of $20,000 bail.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … cops in Burbank got a 911 call last Wednesday for a suspicious person stumbling around yards in a neighborhood near the Warner Bros. studio lot.
Cops responded and arrested Weiss around 2:30 PM, booking him for possession of a controlled substance. We’re told he had meth on him … unclear exactly how much, though. He’s being held on a $20,000 bond.
We broke the story … Weiss was sentenced to 150 days in jail for petty theft just last month, but only served 12 days due to overcrowding. His manager told us at the time Weiss was hoping jail could help him, and that he’d be trying to write a script or jokes while behind bars.
This actually isn’t Weiss craziness encounter with law enforcement. Back in 2013, authorities were called to neutralize an incident when Weiss allegedly punched his then-girlfriend, threatened her with a machete and attempted to urinate on her. His ex-girlfriend filed a restraining order again Weiss, which was eventually dissolved when she didn’t appear in court.
Hopefully, Weiss can turn things around on “the inside.”
Prison is probably (definitely) not the best method to treat humans with drug issues. But Weiss certainly needs some type of assistance in his time of need.
You can do it, Goldberg!
