Heidi Fleiss Charged on Multiple Drug Counts — Why Wasn’t She Arrested?
“Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss, who is most famous for being charged and jailed for running a prostitution ring, is in trouble with the law yet again. According to TMZ, Heidi was charged with multiple marijuana-related offenses after nearly 400 weed plants were found in her Pahrump, Nevada home.
Although police were not looking for Heidi when they approached her farm, they found 392 plants, and no license to grow them. Officers collected the plants as evidence and charged Heidi with multiple crimes, including possession and intent to distribute.
As for the reasoning behind her abundant grow operation, Heidi apparently claimed that she was growing the weed for a “cooperative in Las Vegas.”
The former madam has a history of substance abuse, and has been treated multiple times for issues. Most recently, she was a cast member on Celebrity Rehab in 2009. Dr. Drew Pinsky treated her at Pasadena Recovery Center, finding a frontal lobe dysfunction in the most famous brothel owner around.
Although Heidi is once again in trouble for drugs, she was not arrested, “due to the fact that she has approx $200,000 worth of exotic birds in the residence plus she gave us consent to search without a warrant and was very cooperative throughout the investigation."
