The 46-year-old actor was charged with one count of possession of marijuana and a traffic charge after being arrested by officers from the Mangham Police Department in Louisiana on Saturday (21.10.17).

Mangham Police Chief Perry Fleming told The News-Star that Corey will have to pay a fine and he was released after being charged.

Richland Parish Sheriff Gary Gilley that some other people in Corey's entourage are facing other charges and were booked into the Richland Parish Jail for the night.

Corey was due to perform at the Live Oaks Bar and Ballroom in Monroe as part of his 'Heavenly US Angelic Tour' but the performance was axed.

However, he took part in a meet and greet with fans at the venue.

A message on the Live Oaks' Facebook page stated: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Corey Feldman show has been canceled. We would like to apologize for the cancellation. He will still be coming to hangout and it's totally free.. share this post please guys!! (sic)."

Meanwhile, Corey recently announced that he plans to "shed some light" on sexual harassment scandals in the wake of the allegations made against Harvey Weinstein.

The former child star has previously claimed he was sexually abused by an unnamed Hollywood producer as a teenager, and in a lengthy rant on Twitter, he insisted he is working on a way to seek "actual justice" after having his career "shut down" by those who didn't believe him.

He wrote: "4 THE RECORD: I WILL NOT B GOING ON A TALK SHOW 2 DISCLOSE NAMES OF MY ABUSER OR ANY1 ELSES ABUSERS. SO PLEASE STOP ASKING ME 2 DO SO.

"THE PRACTICE OF SENSATIONALIZING THIS TOPIC WITH NO PLAN OF ACTION OR PROTECTION 4 MY FAMILY, WOULD PROVE FRUITLESS! I HAV BEEN THRU ENOUGH

"ALREADY OVER THIS! MY CAREER WAS SHUT DOWN, I HAVE BEEN MOCKED & SHAMED 4 DOING WHAT I HAVE DONE 2 THIS POINT! I WOULD LOVE 2 C OTHERS COME

"FORWARD AS THERE R MANY OTHER WITNESSES 2 THE CRIMES I HAVE ADDRESSED. STILL NOT 1 OF MY PEERS HAS OFFERED UP ANYTHING IN A DECADE!

"THAT SAID I AM WORKING ON A PLAN THAT MAY B A WAY FORWARD 2 SHED SOME LITE ON THIS SITUATION! IF I CAN FIGURE OUT A WAY 2 GET ACTUAL JUSTICE (sic)"

Whilst 'The Goonies' actor has still yet to name the producer who he claims harassed him, he has said he's "glad" people are coming forward to shame 65-year-old Harvey Weinstein, who stands accused of sexually harassing over 40 women in a 30-year period.

He added: "WHILE NOT RISKING MY SAFETY & WELL BEING, U WILL KNOW WHEN THAT TIME COMES! AS 4 NOW, IM GLAD PPL R TALKING, & I PRAY THAT OTHERS COME FWD! (sic)"
