Heide Fleiss in her most recent mugshot.
Nye County Sheriff’s deputies say they stopped Fleiss’ Toyata Land Cruiser about 3:30 Tuesday morning and found her to allegedly be under the influence “of a controlled substance”. That gave them probable cause to search her car, where they found a quarter pound of herb and about $10,000 in cash.
Back in August, Fleiss was charged with a handful of marijuana crimes after cops say they found roughly 400 plants at her home and a nearby residence. She said at the time that the plants were for a Las Vegas medical marijuana dispensary but admitted that she didn’t have the proper paperwork to be a caregiver. She was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a home where drugs are sold.
She wasn’t arrested in August, as police felt sorry for the nearly $200,000 worth of exotic birds that Fleiss was caring for at the time. This time, she wasn’t so lucky. Cops arrested her on intent to sell charges, driving with a suspended registration and driving without insurance. She is currently being held on a $22,000 bail.
According to The Las Vegas Sun, Fleiss was ironically scheduled to appear in court today on her August charges.
For those too young to remember, Fleiss once ran a high-profile prostitution ring in Hollywood with clients, the most well-known is likely actor Charlie Sheen. Fleiss never revealed her entire client list, but many studio big-wigs were alleged to have had her on speed dial. She was busted in 1993 and served about two years in jail on tax evasion charges.
