The 46-year-old former child actor was cited at the scene and taken to a local jail, The Blast reports.

Fleming told The Blast officers pulled Feldman's RV over for speeding. They asked to see his driver's license, which they discovered was suspended. They also smelled a "strong odor" of pot coming from the RV, Fleming said.

Feldman agreed to a search and officers found a small amount of marijuana. He was arrested and taken to jail, where he paid a $400 fine.

Other members of his band were also arrested on drug charges and will be booked at the Richland Parish jail. Fleming told the News Star that at least six others will be charged. Fleming told The Blast that members of the band faced more serious drug charges.

The members of the band were released and posted bail, but will have to be back for a court date.
