Back in April 1994, Starr was sentenced to 30 days in the Houston jail for
misdemeanor drug possession. Starr was arrested at Houston's Intercontinental Airport while trying to check in for a flight to Los Angeles with a suitcase he had stolen from the baggage claim area. Authorities searched him and found he was carrying marijuana.

It was nearly three years ago that ALICE IN CHAINS that lead singer Layne Staley was found dead in his University District apartment from a drug overdose.
