Tom Sizemore Busted Again


When we last saw Tom Sizemore he was being investigated for robbing a Verizon wireless store back in March. Besides allegedly stealing multiple cell phones he also decided to really go for the bucks and steal a highlighter and some pens also. Well, you know they do have big resale value on the street.

Anyway, last night around midnight, police were called to investigate a domestic violence matter. Well, you know Tom and domestic violence. This time though it appears he was not involved in beating anyone and just "happened" to be near the action. So near in fact that the cops ran his name through the computer and discovered that Tom had an outstanding warrant for his arrest due to a drug arrest in Bakersfield. Apparently Tom didn't show up for a court date or follow his program or just doesn't care. Tom was with a friend who was also arrested for drug possession.

You remember when Tom Sizemore had a career? He was going places. Now the only place he is going is an early death or some very long stretches of prison time.

He was a contender. Could have had it all.

Thought he did a good job of playing himself on Southland.

Every time I see Sizemore it makes me glad that Robert Downey Jr. somehow found a way out of that same hole.

lindsay, take note.

Last summer I met a madam who just used to be a "girl" at Brandi's - our (Vancouver's) most renowned strip club. I believe Affleck got into some trouble there once. Anyway, she told me the most amazing (but not really) story about Sizemore from the period where he was seeing Fleiss and her experiences with him. That guy has serious problems.

Rocket Queen, please elaborate!

What a shame. He had such talent. He was so good in "Saving Private Ryan".

Cheryl said...

Damn! Pens and cells phones. He's almost at Corey Haim's level.

Kat said...

Makes me sad, he does. Always like him in everything he does. Sky would be the limit if he'd just get his act together.

Addiction is so sad. The twelve steps really do work but, as they say, you have to work them.

figgy said...

Hey, I'm only 4 steps from Sizemore! My cousin used to date/live with Heidi Fleiss's aunt. w00t.

Rocket Queen said...

Ok, I'll write up the story later today and post it here - I don't see the girl anymore so I don't think it'll get back to her that I shared. ;)

selenakyle said...

Gyahhh, some people just can't get it together.

But addiction is apparently forever.

I never got bad--not even close--and am clean except for weed, but to this DAY I still have coke dreams. Had one last night, matter fact.

Hell, I don't even have cigarette dreams and I smoked for years.

But that specter of blow comes at ya in the night, a bump here, a bump there. And in the weirdest dreams, too!

Cannot imagine what temptation these H'wood types have on a daily basis, and understandable with so many bad influences all around some of them simply can't kick the habit.

Sad, cuz I like Sizemore.

selenakyle said...

Mooshki--I thought the same thing.

RDJ has mega-talent too, was such a waste and I'm so glad he got clean.

Harriet Hellfire said...

What a shame. I like Tom Sizemore, he's been in some of my very favourite movies...but he's a wreck.

nancer said...

did anyone else watch that documentary (was it a series??) about him? he'd been in all this trouble and finally got a part in a really bad horror flick. nobody else would hire him. he is certifiably nuts, he's a hopeless addict and the women he picks are as bad as he is.
he was a good actor once, but he's flushed it all away.

he was never as lovable as RDJ. even at his worst, RDJ wasn't the asshole this guy is. everyone was pulling for RDJ and he finally got it. sizemore never will.

bionic bunny! said...

agree w/ all the RDJ comments. part of it was that he has always been so amazingly talented. sure, his big comeback was mostly special effects, but as a young man, i remember how amazing he was.

i honestly don't remember anything about sizemore, isn't that sad?

ardleigh said...

It's a darn shame to be blessed with such talent and throw it all away to chase a high.

I don't think he'll ever get clean.
He's gone pretty low. Just how deep would his rock bottom have to be? Other then 6ft under?

Rocket Queen said...

Ok, sorry for the length of the story - I cut it as much as I could.
Also SelenaKyle - I still get those dreams, too :( I wonder if the craving ever goes away?

Ok, so the general story I heard from the current “madam”, former “girl” (I’ll call her Amber) was this: she met him at Brandi’s, he took an instant liking to her and asked for her card, which she gave him. He called her that night to come to his hotel room, where he was staying while filming a movie at that time (whenever he was with Fleiss). She gets to his room – and of her entire memory of him – this is what she found most hilarious: he was wearing a pair of PINK sweat pants and an open dress shirt, obviously all hopped up on something
At the time, she was sober (not when I met her though) and he asked her if she wanted a drink, she said no, and explained why. She said he was clearly tweaking out and said “Me too! In fact, I credit DeNiro (if I remember correctly?) for saving my life! We were filming a movie together and he broke down my door and yelled at me about drugs – he saved me.” About ten minutes later, he says, “Do you wanna do a line?” And she reminds him that no, she’s sober. “Oh right,” he says, “well I’m just maybe gonna do a little one.” And proceeds to do lines the rest of the night.
Somewhere in there, the phone rings and he ANSWERS it while they’re in flagrante delicto, and it’s Fleiss calling from H’wood. He CONTINUES to eff Amber WHILE he’s on the phone, screaming at Fleiss about how he’s behaving himself. After hanging up, he name-drops Fleiss to Amber, making sure she knows who he was talking to, then proceeds to talk about what a jealous pain in the ass she is. I asked for details about what he was into sex-wise, but she wouldn’t give me the dirt on that – weird time to protect his privacy.
Anyway, the next day, Amber takes a week off work to get breast implants and apparently Tom calls Brandi’s looking for her when she doesn’t answer her phone. When he can’t get Amber, he orders another girl. That girl and he continue to see each other for a while until the girl gets fed up with not getting paid and it gets ugly. The girl threatens to call Fleiss and tell the whole story, he ignores her, she calls Fleiss, it gets ugly. And, if you believe Amber, that’s when Fleiss flipped her lid and things went to hell in a handbasket between those two.

Rocket Queen, omg, thank you for sharing. That is so incredible, yet believable.

Rocket Queen said...

I forgot to mention that before this, "Amber" had no idea who he was, she only realized how "big" he was after all that shit between he and Fleiss hit the papers.

shakey said...

Southland episode. Listen to what she says after she's arrested:
