Judge Orders Sizemore Held Without Bail

Actor Tom Sizemore reacts during his sentencing in a courtroom in Los Angeles, Thursday, March 24, 2005. Sizemore, whose acting credits include ``Black Hawk Down'' and ``Saving Private Ryan,'' was sentenced to a 21-month jail term for repeatedly failing drug tests while on probation in a domestic violence case, but he does not have to surrender immediately.
Tom Sizemore surrendered Tuesday to face a hearing on whether he violated probation with his recent arrest for drug possession.

Superior Court Judge Cynthia Rayvis later ordered the "Saving Private Ryan" actor held without bail pending a June 19 hearing, said Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the district attorney's office.

Sizemore, 45, had arrived at a county courthouse in a convertible and was greeted by reporters. When asked how he was doing, he replied: "I'm OK."

Sizemore was arrested last month at a Bakersfield hotel. Authorities said they found methamphetamines in his car.

He was released but a Los Angeles judge later issued a warrant for his arrest for violating probation in another methamphetamine case. If convicted, he could be forced to serve out a 16-month prison sentence.

In the Bakersfield case, Sizemore has pleaded not guilty to seven drug-related charges, including transportation and possession of methamphetamines, possession of prescription drugs without the proper prescription and being under the influence of a controlled substance.

He faces up to six years in prison if convicted.
