[UPDATED] Jason Davis Busted for Druggin' In Zooport Two Nights After Saying He Was Clean on Celebrity Rehab
The grandson of billionaire Marvin Davis faces three felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, misdemeanor use of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the Orange County district attorney's office (OCDA).
He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday at the Harbor Justice Center in Newport Beach. Under Proposition 36, Davis could also be sentenced to a drug-diversion program in lieu of jail time, according to the OCDA.
Known as "Gummi Bear" because of his not-so-svelte physique, the socialite actor was previously arrested for possessing heroin and DUI in early March 2008. That July, he pleaded guilty to the possession rap and no contest to the DUI, earning a 36-month drug-program sentence.
His brother, Alexander Davis, and actor Tom Arnold tore up Jason's LA apartment with a baseball bat and staged an intervention in December 2009 to get him into rehab.On a Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew reunion special that aired on VH-1 two days before his Jan. 27 Zooport arrest, Davis professed to being clean.

TMZ has the scoop.
Davis was reportedly held in lieu of $20,000 bail.
"Jason was honest about struggles with his sobriety on the reunion show," a disappointed Dr. Drew Pinsky tells TMZ. "Hopefully, now that there are legal consequences, further treatment will be mandated, which he desperately needs. We care for him deeply and are here for him."
