Feldman was scheduled to play a concert approximately 30 miles northwest of Mangham in Monroe, LA, at the Live Oaks Bar & Ballroom with his band, Corey Feldman & the Angels.
According to Mangham Police Chief Perry Fleming, the misdemeanor charges will only result in a fine for Feldman, and he was released from custody without being booked into jail.
However, additional members of the actor’s entourage — as many as six people — were booked into the Richland Parish Jail overnight and are facing various other charges.
The actor, known for roles in The Goonies and The Lost Boys, made headlines just days before his arrest. Feldman, who has spoken out against sexual abuse in Hollywood for years, took to Twitter in the aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein scandal to ask for his peers who witnessed such abuses to speak out.
“For the record, I will not be going on a talk show to disclose names of my abusers or anyone else’s abusers. So please stop asking me to do so,” Feldman wrote. “The practice of sensationalizing this topic with no plan of action or protection for my family would prove fruitless. I have been through enough!”
“This is not about fear of being sued!” he later tweeted. “Yes, that’s a real possibility. But the bigger reason is safety for my family.”
