TMZ and Xonline:
Tatum O'Neal was just arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court for her crack and coke bust last night -- she's facing one misdemeanor charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance.
O'Neal was released on her own recognizance and she's due back in court on July 28.
Our spies say she looked a total mess in court, wearing a gray T-shirt -- and her purple bra strap was showing. She was "clearly distressed" and even had court officers blocking the view of onlookers.
As you've probably heard, the actress/daughter of Ryan O'Neal/ex-wife of John MacEnroe was busted for buying cocaine and crack last night near her Lower East Side apartment!
And here was the excuse she gave the cops, according to the New York Post:
- "You know who I am, right?" Then she said, "I'm researching a part - I'm doing this for a part as a junkie. Can't we just forget about this?" !!!!
