LOS ANGELES: Actor Tom Sizemore has violated the terms of probation imposed for abusing ex-girlfriend and former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss, a prosecutor said on May 10.
Prosecutors allege that Sizemore â€œtested dirtyâ€ for drugs in early March, according to defence attorney Mark Werksman, who filed a response under seal on May 10. â€œWeâ€™re asking the court and the public to withhold judgment â€˜til we have a hearing and have the opportunity to prove that this allegation is bogus,â€ he said.
Deputy City Attorney Robert Cha said he alleged the probation violation in a motion April 29. He declined to provide specifics, saying only, â€œI didnâ€™t file this motion for no reason, with nothing to support it.â€ He is tested for drugs regularly under terms of his probation. Sizemore is currently in Canada shooting a new police television series. The 42-year-old actor has been tapped to play Pete Rose in an upcoming made-for-television movie called â€˜Hustleâ€™. â€” AFP
