Actress Daveigh Chase was allegedly arrested on drug charges in Los Angeles back in August.

Actress Daveigh Chase, who played the malevolent Samara in the 2002 American film version of The Ring, is facing a jail sentence and a $1,000 fine if convicted on two charges of drug possession.

The 28-year-old, who also provided the voice of Lilo in Disney’s Lilo and Stitch, was arrested in Los Angeles in August 2018 and booked for possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia. The presiding judge also issued a warrant for her arrest as part of the recent ruling, which took place on November 6.

Chase was arrested on August 6, 2018 by the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollywood division on the drug charge, which was a misdemeanor. According to The New York Daily News, she spent two hours behind bars before being released on a $1,000 bond.

The arrest is the latest in a string of run-ins with the law for the actress. Chase was previously arrested and locked up on a $25,000 bond in November 2017 on charges of driving in a stolen car without the owner’s consent.

That same year, while under arrest for an outstanding traffic misdemeanor warrant, Chase was questioned by police about allegedly leaving an unidentified man outside a Hollywood hospital before fleeing the scene.

The man was pronounced dead by hospital employees upon discovery, but Chase, who reportedly spent time with the man prior to the incident, was not charged with any crime or playing any role in the death.

Chase is currently facing two misdemeanor charges of possession of a controlled substance without a valid prescription and possession of drug paraphernalia. The charges carry a possible sentence of one year in jail and a fine up to $1,000. Because Chase was released on the aforementioned bond, the judge also issued a warrant for her arrest.

Chase began her professional career in television commercials before making her screen-acting debut at the age of eight. Roles in Donnie Darko and voice-over work for the English-language version of Spirited Away led to her star-making turns in Lilo and Stitch and The Ring.

She earned an Annie Award and an MTV Movie Award, respectively, for the projects, and later enjoyed a recurring role on Big Love. In recent years, Chase has made regular appearances in independent features and made-for-television films, while continuing to work as a voice-over actor for video games.
