Actor Brad Renfro arrested in undercover drug sting in Los Angeles

Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Actor Brad Renfro was arrested in a sting operation after he allegedly tried to buy heroin near downtown's Skid Row, police said.

Renfro, 23, was booked for investigation of felony attempting to possess heroin, Detective Ron Hodges said.

``He was intending to buy real heroin from an undercover officer,'' Hodges said.

Renfro, the star of the 1994 film ``The Client,'' was caught during a random sting operation Thursday that resulted in the arrests of 14 other suspects, Hodges said.

Renfro's lawyer did not immediately return a call for comment placed after business hours Thursday.

The actor was charged in 1998 with possession of cocaine and marijuana, but avoided jail time in a plea deal.

He was sentenced to two years' probation in January 2001 on charges of trying to steal a yacht in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

He was arrested in May 2001 and charged with underage drinking. The next year, he was charged with driving without a license and public intoxication. Both violated terms of his probation. Renfro was ordered into an alcohol rehabilitation program in March 2002.

His movie credits include ``Ghost World,'' ``Bully'' and ``Apt Pupil.''
