Former child star Macaulay Culkin was arrested on drug charges during a traffic stop, authorities said.

The 24-year-old actor, best known for his role in the Home Alone movies, was taken into custody on Friday on complaints of possession of a controlled dangerous substance without a valid prescription and possession of marijuana, according to the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s office.

Culkin, who lives in New York City, was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail and released after posting US$4,000, a jailer said.

Authorities confiscated about 17 grams of marijuana from a vehicle in which Culkin was a passenger. Officers also found 16 milligrams of prescription medications used to control anxiety and seizures, according to a police report.

Culkin was in a vehicle driven by a 22-year-old New York City man who was stopped for driving 70mph (113kph) in a 60mph (96.5kph) speed zone and for making an improper lane change.

It was not clear whether Culkin had a lawyer. It also was not clear why Culkin was in Oklahoma City.
