'The Ring' Star Daveigh Chase Charged With Drug Possession

Former child star Daveigh Chase has been formally charged with drug possession.

Known for her roles in The Ring, Lilo and Stitch, Donnie Darko and Big Love, the 28-year-old faces one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000 if convicted. 

A Californian judge has issued a warrant for her arrest over two misdemeanour charges of possession of a controlled substance without a valid prescription, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Daveigh Chase was first arrested in August on a misdemeanour count of possession of a controlled substance. She spent two hours behind bars before posting $1,000, and getting released.

In November 2017, the actress was allegedly caught joyriding in a possibly stolen car. She was charged with driving without the owner's consent. Ten months prior, Chase was detained by Los Angeles Police after leaving a dying man in a car outside a hospital. He was pronounced dead of a suspected overdose.

The Las Vegas-born child star's breakout role was as Samantha Darko, Jake Gyllenhaal's younger sister in the 2001 cult classic, Donnie Darko. She then voiced the role of 'Lilo' in the Oscar nominated animation, Lilo and Stitch.

From 1998 to 2008, Daveigh Chase already had close to 40 film and television credits under her belt. More recently, the former child actress has found major parts harder to come by, appearing in more low-budget films, as opposed to the box office hits she found herself working on as a child.
