The arrest occurred in Los Angeles and was a felony narcotics charge. Currently he is being held at the Bauchet Street Jail with bail set at $100,000.

Starr has been booked as a cast member for the upcoming “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew,” a show to air in January and follow the real-life experiences of celebrities going through rehab at the Pasadena Recovery Center.

This past May Starr had joined Facelift, an Alice in Chains tribute band, to perform three songs at a New York performance. According to Facelift Starr “was in great shape and form. [His] performance was flawless and this just about squashes all rumors of his prior poor health condition. The crowd response was amazing as crowd-surfing and high-decibel applause was present.”

Unfortunately this is not the first time Starr has been arrested for drug charges – his past infractions include DUI, reckless driving, and drug possession.

Mike, Alice is just not the same without you. Mike Inez is great and seems like an awesome person but I miss your vibe. You brought an element of darkness and heaviness you just can't recreate. I liked it better when everybody was a native of Seattle.

Mike,

You are doing fine and have come a long ways. I’m confident in you. Don’t forget that book given to you. It will help guide you to that inner peace you so much desire.
