Goonies star Corey Feldman has been arrested on a marijuana charge just days after making allegations of a Hollywood paedophile ring.

Feldman, who left Hollywood and is now on tour with his band, was arrested in Louisiana after he was pulled over in his tour bus for speeding.

He was taken to Mangham police station where he was charged with counts of speeding, driving with a suspended license, and possession of marijuana, according to KNOE8News.

He was released after paying a fine, though said he was never properly arrested, and was slapped with a misdemeanour because one of his crew had medical marijuana.

An official statement from Police Chief Perry Fleming said:

On 21st day of October 2017, Officer Waters stopped a RV for speeding on HWY 425 in Mangham. Officer Waters made contact with the driver, Corey Scott Feldman, of Woodlawn Hills, California.

Officer Waters ran his drivers license which were suspended. Feldman was transported to the Mangham Police department. Upon arrival at the Mangham Police department Officer Monnin smelled what appeared to be marijuana.

The statement continues to detail the arrests made and the charges on each person in the tour bus. Feldman paid his fine and was released, along with all the members of his crew.

Feldman has called the timing of his arrest ‘ironic’, but insists no illegal street drugs were found.

He tweeted:

I was not arrested or put in jail. I received a misdemeanor in Louisiana, due to a member of my crew having medical marijuana, with a legal CA prescription, I had nothing on me, but was charged because it’s my bus.

Also five others were charged due to having legal medicines without their particular bottles. No illegal or street drugs were found on the bus at all! Which is why nobody spent the night in jail.

He continued:

However we were promised that these charges could all be dropped with proof of proper scripts. It was a bit of a good ol’ shakedown! After we paid them in cash, they asked for pics and autographs, and then called the local paper to do interviews.

I do find the timing of all this ironic! But have no fear, we are headed to Houston, and we will perform the benefit concert tonight to help raise $.

Feldman had previously made allegations about sexual abuse when he was younger, alleging that as a child actor, he and The Lost Boys co-star Corey Haim were abused by rich and powerful people in Hollywood.

In a 2016 interview with ABC News, Feldman said:

I can tell you the number one problem was and is and always will be, paedophilia.

It’s all done under the radar. It’s the big secret. I was surrounded by them when I was 14 years old. Literally. They were everywhere, like vultures.

Apparently, the figures are ‘still prominent within the business’ today.

On Friday, he sent a bunch of tweets about being sexually abused at a young age, confirming he would not name his or ‘anyone else’s’ abuser.

He tweeted:

For the record: I will not be going on a talk show to disclose names of my abuser or anyone else’s abuser. So please stop asking me to do so.

Already over this! My career was shut down, I have been mocked and shamed for doing what I have done to this point. I would love to see others come forward as there are many other witnesses to the crimes I have addressed.

Still, not one of my peers has offered up anything in a decade.

Feldman stated that Haim, who died in 2010 of pneumonia after sustained drug abuse had much more ‘direct’ abuse than Feldman.
