Lots of action in Malibu this week. We’ve already reported that Grey’s Anatomy hunk Patrick Dempsey saved a teen’s life when the 16-year-old’s Ford Mustang crashed into the yard of McDreamy’s Malibu home. Now we’re hearing that just down the road, the daughter of Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner was arrested in an incident involving guns and drugs.
Courtney Wagner was arrested on felony charges of cocaine and heroin possession after cops responded to a 911 call about gunshots and a woman screaming, according to TMZ.
An unidentified male who was with Courtney at the time was also arrested for negligent discharge of a firearm. Courtney, shown in the lower right corner of this old family photo, has been released on $10,000 bail.
Just 7 years old at the time of her mother’s mysterious death, Courtney told the press that she barely remembers her mom and that she never felt pressured to step into the famous footsteps of either parent.
“I don’t remember very much about my mother,” she said in a 2004 interview. “I do remember her laugh and the way she smelled, and I remember her hands — things like that that made me feel close to her.”
“A lot of people ask me if there’s any pressure living up to the Wagner name, but I don’t think so,” she said. “The only pressure I would ever feel is, I would always want my family to be proud of me. I just want my dad to feel he raised a solid person to be compassionate and care about the things that he cared about.”
A court date has yet to be announced.
