Sizemore Arrested at Courthouse

6/6/2007 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sizemore MugshotUPDATE: TMZ has learned that Sizemore's bail has been denied, so he will remain locked up until his next hearing on June 19.

Actor Tom Sizemore appeared at a Los Angeles courtroom this morning, expecting the judge to recall the warrant for his arrest. But things didn't go exactly as planned.

TMZ was inside the courtroom when the actor was unexpectedly taken into custody by the bailiff before the judge even arrived for Sizemore's probation violation hearing.

Sizemore's attorney had filed a motion to transfer courtrooms last week, claiming that Sizemore would not get a fair shake with the current judge. A judge obliged, and granted the motion.

Sizemore will remain behind bars until the new judge assigned to the case decides when she wants the hearing to begin. We're told that Judge Cynthia Rayvis could begin the case as soon as after lunch -- or set it for another day entirely.

This is too bad, but he just messed up. Sizemore is a very good actor who has essentially ruined his career for a high. Stupid.

Tom can always roll over on his drug connections.
He can't really get any lower than he is now.

WTF, Tom needs rehab, not prison. He'll just end up doing more drugs in jail. He should get with Jan Michael Vincent...

How sick and tired are we of the Hollywood pretty people who simply cannot get their s**t together regardless of the millions of chances they get that we dont get as the public people who cannot afford lawyers to find loopholes for paying taxes. Hey Tom....whadev dude!!!

Another busted user/addict? Some advice to Tom's attorney - is it wise to piss off the judiciary even before the case is heard? Guess they'll see how "well" Tom's doing after holding him over for 24 hours with no drugs thanks to your judge shopping antics. On the other hand, you may have done the guy a favor.

Well....crap. That's sucks for Tom. Try and keep your head up Tom. We all know that cheesy cliché saying "it's always darkest before the dawn." But then again a cheesy cliché saying doesn't mean alot when your locked up being bars with some seriously insane guy standing in the corning holding a pile of feces in his hands and then telling you he is going to use that feces to draw a huge pentagram on the jail cell wall.

Good Luck Tom! I sincerely hope you can get through this and recover. You are a very talented and seemingly nice guy. It's an addiction and I pray for you. I really do.
