LATEST: Macaulay Culkin wouldn't have been arrested in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on drugs charges if he hadn't been crossing America with his pet bulldog.

The actor was arrested on possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription when Oklahoma police spotted the car Culkin was in swerving on a freeway.

Culkin explained to cops that he was driving across the US with his pet bulldog because he didn't want to put him in a crate and fly the pooch from New York to Los Angeles.

Culkin will be arraigned on the drug charges on 15 October (04).
