Adam Farrar, the step-brother of Leonardo DiCaprio, was reportedly arrested on drug charges in Texas.

Farrar was arrested on three outstanding misdemeanor warrants, which were from Los Angeles. They involve alleged drug possession, possession of stolen property, and harassment.

He’s currently in jail in Texas. Farrar, 43, was arrested when he attempted to visit his girlfriend, Charity Moore, reported Radar Online.

Farrar, who has a 6-year-old daughter with Moore, faces several years in jail.

Moore, 38, was arrested about five days before Farrar on charges including possession of a controlled substance, theft of property under $500, and other charges. She also faces years in jail if convicted.

“Adam and Charity have been hiding with Normandie in Texas, away from the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Service, who have long been involved in their cases due to their criminal pasts. They had been staying in North Dallas. Now, no-one in the family is sure where their daughter is, at this time,” a source told the website.

Farrar has been in trouble with the law for several years.

DiCaprio, who is nominated for an Oscar for “The Wolf on Wall Street,” reported doesn’t have any contact with his step-brother.

He has “had zero contact in recent years and do not get along. It’s a very bitter family feud,” a source told the website.

DiCaprio and Farrar used to be close, with the two attending Lakers games in Los Angeles together.

Farrar appeared in the TV series “Battlestar Galactica” and “Eight is Enough,” and is said to have fueled DiCaprio’s pursuit into acting early on.

“’Adam is one of the most nonviolent people I know,” said Peggy DiCaprio of her step-son, reported the New York Daily News in 2000 when Farrar was arrested.
