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.

Adults that got their hollywood career started in their childhood or adolescence are often tempted by drugs to escape the "non-traditional" childhoods that the public has, be that good or bad. I hope that Leif, who is our age, will be given another chance to continue being a contributing member of The Smoking Gun's Dummest shows and that he will be blessed with the desire and ability to be a good mentor to other young actors.

No doubt about it............. "Jess", "Nikita",and now "Matt' are ALL idiots. You would not recognize an independent thought,or appreciate one, if your lives depended on it. A trio of probably unemployed,dope soaked,under achievers.Hanging around the TMZ site, waiting, minute by minute,for my comments to spew their frat boy humor.Truth be told,NONE of you have a clue as to what is really going on,and you know it! And all together don't have enough brains to form a rational thought.How sad you three are! Personally attacking someone. Have you no shame ? As for Garrett,he will get what all addicts should get. A lingering death via drug abuse if he doesn't stop. In short,"Jess", "Nikita",and "Matt",to put in the only words you three can understand p... off !

It's been proven that if drug addicts can stay healthy long enough, eventually their need for the drug will be satiated and the addiction will fade away.

Damn WICKED WACKY WANDA W. - You're really in a mood, huh? You should never use the expression "truth be told" because you obviously do not know what the truth is. Remember what I told you about assuming? You should never assume things. Please get some help for your anger issues.
