Shocking news!! Last night, New York police caught the Oscar-winning actress Tatum O’Neal in the process of buying crack cocaine just a few blocks from her flat on the Upper East Side.
O’Neal was the youngest actor ever to win an Acadamy Award. She was arrested at around 7:30pm last night by detectives from Manhattan South Narcotics on Clinton Street between East Broadway and Grand Street, sources said.
“When the police approached, she asked them, ‘You know who I am, right?'”, a source reportedly told the New York Post. She went on to say she was doing “research” for an acting role.
It’s being reported a pipe was found on O’Neal but that it was clean. Tatum O’Neal is the daugher to Ryan O’Neal and she was once married to three-times Wimbledon champion John McEnroe.
While in the process of being arrested last night, she reportedly asked police “Can’t we just forget about this?”
“She’s cool – it’s the last thing I thought would happen,” said a security official at her block of flats. “I’m shocked.”
Tatum has been known to battle alcohol and drugs in her past, but did her arrest surprise you?
