Tom Sizemore surrendered to a Los Angeles court Tuesday on an arrest warrant for allegedly violating probation.

Sizemore, 45, was arrested on May 8 in Bakersfield, Calif., for investigation of using crystal methamphetamine outside a hotel. He was charged with five drug-related felonies and pleaded not guilty to each on May 22.

But at the time of his arrest, the Black Hawk Down actor was on probation stemming from a conviction of meth possession in October 2004. The Los Angeles District Attorney has asked a judge to revoke the probation.

Sizemore faces 16 months in state prison if it’s found that he violated probation.

Sizemore has a long history of problems with the law. He was convicted of misdemeanor charges in 2003 for allegedly harassing and physically abusing ex-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss. Two years later, his probation was revoked for trying to fool a drug test.

His lawyer, Gilbert Gaynor, declined to comment.
