OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A court hearing for actor Macaulay Culkin has been delayed so that attorneys can work on a plea bargain in his drug possession case, court officials said.

Culkin, 24, was scheduled to appear in Oklahoma County District Court Thursday, but the hearing was moved to April 6.

Culkin's attorney, Catherine Burton, could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon.

Police arrested Culkin, star of the movie "Home Alone," on Sept. 17. Prosecutors charged him with misdemeanor counts of possession of marijuana and possession of the prescription drug Xanax.

Culkin has pleaded innocent to the charges and is free on $4,000 bail.
