Mackenzie Phillips busted with drugs at LAX



Tbdmackenziephillips082808 In an item sure to appeal only to Juice*heads of a certain age, Mackenzie Phillips was arrested at LAX on Wednesday for suspicion of possessing a controlled substance. For those of you too young to remember One Day at a Time, she was the not-as-pretty older sister to Valerie Bertinelli, the girl who's in the Jenny Craig ads now, but was once married to Eddie Van Halen.

Anyway, Airport police Sgt. Jim Holcomb said Phillips was on her way to NYC when a security search turned up a pinch of cocaine and a dash of heroin, the AP reports. That's no big surprise, since drugs are why she was fired from the sitcom, which ended in 1984. Younger Juice*olytes may have seen here in Disney's So Weird, which is pretty appropriate for the 48-year-old. If only she could have called Schneider.
