Former child star Macaulay Culkin has denied charges of drug possession following his arrest last month (17SEP04).

The Home Alone actor stands accused of possessing controlled anti-anxiety drug Xanax without a prescription and cannabis after he was the passenger in a car which was stopped for speeding in Oklahoma City.

The 24-year-old made his plea at the Oklahoma City court yesterday (13OCT04) and is due to return on 2 December (04).

If found guilty of the charges, Culkin is not expected to face a custodial sentence. Instead, he would likely be instructed to attend a drug treatment programme as part of a plea bargain.
