Filmmaker Oliver Stone arrested on drug, alcohol charges
Sat May 28, 2005 03:46 PM ET


SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Academy Award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone was arrested on drunken driving and drug charges at a police checkpoint in Beverly Hills, California, authorities said on Saturday.
Stone, who won best director Oscars for "Platoon" and "Born on the Fourth of July," was released on Saturday morning after posting $15,000 bond, said Sgt. John Edmundson, a spokesman for the Beverly Hills police department.

Police arrested Stone, 58, on Friday night at a checkpoint on Sunset Boulevard near the border of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, he said.

Stone, driving a Mercedes, was one of nine arrests at the checkpoint set up as part of a statewide crackdown on drunken driving during the Memorial Day weekend. Police would not release details of an intoxication test on Stone or the type of drugs in his possession

2. Note to Stone; get Limbaugh's lawyer, and Bush's after his
little DUI affair. Those lawyers have been excellent in keeping their clients out of jail thus far.

7. Wow, imagine a DWI roadcheck in Beverly Hills...
More action than an eyewash bottle at a tabasco swimming pool.
