TMZ reports the 41-year-old actor was arrested for residential burglary and under the influence of methamphetamine on Sunday morning in Marysville, California. Police said they responded to a call for a burglary in progress and found Weiss looking through a car parked in the garage.

Cops said Weiss showed symptoms of meth use and booked him into Yuba County Jail. His bail has been set at $52,500.

“Weiss forced entry to gain access into the vehicle by shattering a window,” the press release read. “Officers noticed shattered glass on the ground and observed that the passenger window to the vehicle was broken. Officers ordered the male out of the vehicle and took him into custody.”

Weiss also said the vehicle he was filtering through was not his,” the press release read. “After further investigation, it was determined that Weiss starred in several movie’s [sic] and television series.”
