Pot charges dismissed in Faustino case

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Prosecutors in Florida have dropped a misdemeanor pot possession charge against actor David Faustino after he completed a substance-abuse treatment program.

"He received no special treatment from the State Attorney's Office," Faustino's lawyer, Mike Rodriguez, told the Orlando Sentinel. "He did what was asked of him, and he fulfilled all of his conditions."


The former "Married.... with Children" star, who is a Los Angeles resident, completed the requisite program in California, the newspaper said.

Faustino was arrested by a New Smyrna Beach officer last May after a drunken, early morning spat with his now ex-wife in the middle of an intersection.

The actor was arrested after the officer discovered marijuana in his pants pocket, the Sentinel said.
