Cops: Leif Garrett Had Black Tar Heroin in Shoe

2/3/2010 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Leif GarrettLeif Garrett was carrying black tar heroin in his shoe when he was arrested Monday morning in L.A., this according to law enforcement sources.

According to sources, cops first noticed Garrett shaking and sweating profusely at an L.A. Metrolink station -- when they asked him if they could perform a search of his person.

We're told cops asked Garrett if he had any drugs on him -- at first, Garrett told them he didn't ... but then later admitted he was packing heroin in his shoe.

Cops seized the drugs and arrested Garrett on the spot -- before transporting him to a nearby jail where he stayed behind bars until Wednesday morning.

Garrett was eventually released after posting $10,000 bail.

He is due back in court on February 24.

I saw Leif Garret in 1978 when I worked at Peaches Records & the dude had the little girls going CRAZY! Chicks passing out & rioting to meet him. He was so cute & cuddly. I'm glad I aged better than he did. Talk about "rode hard & put away wet". This is the greatest reason to stay away from drugs.

why did he admit it? who would look in his heel? just say he wasn't feeling well, but he has been doing heroin since he was 15,16-over 30 years. Surprised he is still alive. I am really surprised the cops got his bandana off his head. keeps that delusion of having hair-I guess along with that myth that he is clean. Let's see if he is on spike tv's smoking gun stupid criminals...... and here we have a cop going up to a guy and ask him if he has drugs on him and he says yes.... Todd Bridges 'Leif, that's you, you STUPID *****' Danny Bonaduce breaks in 'Where? are they showing our arrest records? Man, told you he had no Hair, you look like a freak garrett. You TOLD them where the drugs were? YOU give up your dealer too? " all laughing....

Is it too late for him to sign up with Dr. Drew and be on Celebrity Rehab? I don't even know who have the people on the current season are; let's see Leif on there. It can't hurt, right?
