Oliver Stone Arrested on DUI, Drug Charges

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone (search) was arrested for investigation of drug possession and driving while intoxicated, police said Saturday.

Stone, 58, was arrested Friday night at a police checkpoint on Sunset Boulevard after showing signs of alcohol intoxication, police Sgt. John Edmundson said.

A search of his Mercedes turned up drugs, Edmundson said. He did not specify what kind.

Stone was released Saturday morning after posting $15,000 bail.

A message left Saturday with Stone's agent David Styne was not immediately returned.

In 1999, the filmmaker pleaded guilty to drug possession and no contest to driving under the influence and was ordered into a rehabilitation program.

Stone's films include the recent "Alexander," "JFK" (1991) and "Natural Born Killers" (1994). He won Academy Awards (search) for directing in 1989 for "Born on the Fourth of July (search)" and in 1986 for "Platoon," which also won the Oscar for best picture. He lives in Los Angeles.

Not really surprised. He said he did a lot of drugs when writing Scarface.

Update:

They found a copy of the "Alexander" dvd in his car, so now he is also going to also be charged with possession of, and transporting, a bomb.

It's ironic, since most artists on drugs actually show bursts of talent...

Now that's uncalled for. Say what you will about his politics and paranoia, but the man certainly is a talented director and film maker.

Do you think his nose was covered with powder like Tony Montana? He did write the Scarface remake, right?

Of his films, I like U-TURN and adore SCARFACE (of which he only wrote) and THE DOORS...beyond that, I think the rest of his oeuvre is dispensible...

Who cares if he had drugs??? Why would anyone care?? I believe its up to him wether or not he wants to take drugs.
Sure it will no doubt affect his films, perhaps thats what happened with Alexander?, but no matter about that, its up to him.
Hes not the first hollywood celeb who was on drugs, wont be the last.

Yes. Remember, this is the LAPA we're talking about: big on celebrity arrests; hoping someday for a conviction!

Well, when you drive your car into someone else who didn't choose to take those substances, then folks care. If you want to get fucked up beyond all belief or piss your life away in the comfort of your own home. That's one thing. But when you put others life at risk so you can get a cheap fix and do something illegal, then others will care.
