Leif Garrett pleads no contest to heroin possession
Garrett, 48, was arrested Feb. 3 at the Pershing Square Metro subway station in downtown L.A., with police who found drugs in his possession describing him as "sweating and shaking profusely" before boarding a train; at his February arraignment he pleaded not guilty to the felony charge.
It was announced in July that he'd joined Rachel Uchitel, Janice Dickinson and others in the cast of the fourth season of VH1's "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew." Filming of the 21-day treatment program ended in August, with the episodes schedule to premiere Dec. 1.
This was Garrett's fourth drug-related arrest, and his second heroin-and-L.A.-subway-station-related arrest.
