Actor Tried to Fake Drug Test, 2 Testify

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Actor Tom Sizemore used a prosthetic device to falsify a urine test ordered as part of his probation on a drug conviction, two drug counselors testified Wednesday at a court hearing near Los Angeles International Airport.

David Aronek and Isidro Ruiz said Sizemore used the device in a failed attempt to pass the May 25 test. Prosecutors said earlier that he had used the device during a previous test.

The 43-year-old actor pleaded guilty in October to a felony charge of possession of methamphetamine. He is free on bail pending his appeal of a separate conviction for domestic violence.
