UPDATED!  "MARRIED...WITH CHILDREN" STAR ARRESTED!

They don’t call him “Bud” for nothing! “Married…With Children” star David Faustino, who played Bud Bundy on the hit sitcom, was partying with his favorite “bud” when he got busted on May 12 in New Smyrna Beach, FL. It’s not the first time the 33-year-old actor has dabbled in doobie – ENQUIRER readers were the first to learn that he bought into the Natural care Collective medical marijuana clinic in Reseda, CA, just so he could get his hands on the very best Silver Kush “wacky tobaccy.” Faustino, who filed for divorce from Andrea Elmer, his wife of six years, in February of this year, saw his good time in Florida go “up in smoke” when he was busted by New Smyrna Beach police and charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and “disorderly intoxication,” police sources told the ENQUIRER. At 1:58 a.m., cops spotted Faustino climbing out through the passenger window from the back seat of a car his ex-wife was driving, “yelling profanities” at her and appearing to have struck her on his way out. Andrea, who works in a Daytona Beach tattoo parlor, insisted he didn’t hit her, but cops noticed both had been drinking. When they frisked Faustino, they found a bag containing “a green leafy substance that tested presumptive positive for cannabis” in Dave’s pocket. Faustino spent four hours behind bars at the Volusia County Jail and was released on his own recognizance, charged with the two misdemeanors. His arraignment is set for July 6. At least, he did better than many arrested actors of late -- looking unshaven and scraggly in his booking “mug shot,” he still managed to face the camera wearing a sunny “illegal smile.” By John Blosser
