Leif Garrett's Charges Dropped
Leif Garrett is off the hook. A drug case and a bench warrant against the '70s Tiger Beat coverboy, who is now 39, have been dismissed in the wake of Garrett's appearance in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Friday. Once there, says the Associated Press, he provided verification that he had successfully completed a drug rehabilitation program. Judge Maral Injejikian also recalled the warrant she had issued last Wednesday, when Garrett failed to appear at a status hearing in the case, according to prosecutor Robert Rabbani. On June 29, 1999, Garrett was among a group of people arrested in a police narcotics sting operation at a downtown L.A. apartment building. He posted a $10,000 bond and was released after he was booked for possession of heroin and cocaine. Last August, the judge praised Garrett for adhering to a program that was part of a 1999 bargain agreement in which Garrett pleaded guilty to drug possession. As part of treatment, he agreed to drug testing, counseling and attending anti-drug classes.
