Actor Corey Feldman Arrested After Tweeting that He Was Working on a Plan to Expose Pedophiles

Actor/musician Corey Feldman was arrested Saturday night on ‘unspecified’ drug charges, according to the Richland Parish Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana. “The Goonies” star and his band were scheduled to play that night at the Live Oaks Bar and Ballroom, but was arrested before the show started.

Feldman was arrested in Richland Parish, Louisiana, for one count of marijuana possession along with a traffic charge. Feldman was released without being booked into jail, The News Star reported. Though he was not in custody for long, the arrest caused Corey Feldman to miss a gig his band was scheduled to play at the Live Oaks Bar and Ballroom in Monroe, Louisiana.

The timing of Feldman’s arrest is interesting considering his recent remarks about Hollywood pedophiles following the epic fall from grace of film producer Harvey Weinstein. The arrest came just one day after Feldman had tweeted that he had a plan for exposing pedophiles in the works and just days after he shared stories of sexual abuse of children that the actor claimed was rampant in Hollywood. Feldman, who has spoken for years about the abuse he suffered and witnessed other child stars endure, had seen his stories elevated in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal and had also mentioned feeling threatened only a few days prior to the arrest.

While Feldman has not given names of his abusers, the week of his arrest the actor had called on other members of Hollywood to step forward and speak out against pedophilia in the industry, People magazine noted. But Feldman reiterated that he would not be naming his own abusers, saying he feared that doing so could bring harm to members of his family.

“For the record, I will not be going on a talk show to disclose names of my abusers or anyone else’s abusers. So please stop asking me to do so,” Feldman wrote. “The practice of sensationalizing this topic with no plan of action or protection for my family would prove fruitless. I have been through enough!”

“This is not about fear of being sued!” he later tweeted. “Yes, that’s a real possibility. But the bigger reason is safety for my family.”
Though the “Lost Boys” star insisted he would not name names, he did say he was “working on a plan” to expose the Hollywood pedophiles and bring them to justice.

“That said I am working on a plan that may be a way forward to shed some light on the situation! If I can figure out a way to get actual justice while not risking my safety and well-being, you will know when that time comes. As for now, I’m glad people are talking and I pray that others come forward!” he said.

“Nobody should live their lives in fear except those who committed these heinous crimes in the first place! I have faith God will see this through.”

As the fallout from the Weinstein scandal continues, it remains to be seen what Feldman’s plan will accomplish once he’s released.
