Former TAXI star Jeff Conaway has been arrested for investigation of driving under the influence of a depressant drug.

CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL officers stopped Conaway on the Harbor Freeway Thursday (22MAY03) for weaving in and out of a traffic lane in a black PORSCHE, says CHP officer ALEX DELGADILLO.

Conaway was booked for misdemeanour driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, says Delgadillo, adding that the 52-year-old actor was allegedly using a central nervous system depressant.

The GREASE star was released that night on $5,000 (GBP3,300) bail and ordered to appear in LOS ANGELES MUNICIPAL COURT on 12 June (03).
