Garrett was taken into custody by police on Monday and held in jail until his release Wednesday morning. Police did not release details on what drug or drugs Garrett was reportedly in possession of at the time of his arrest.

Garrett was previously arrested in 2006 after he was caught riding the subway without a ticket. The former teen star was found with heroin and Quaaludes on his person during that arrest. He was sentenced to attend drug rehab, but failed to complete the program. Garrett was re-sentenced to serve 90 days in jail, with three years probation.

We’re thinking this time around, the court is not going to be so forgiving…
