Anne Heche Had Cocaine In Her System
Anne Heche had cocaine in her system at the time of her fiery car crash last week, police sources told the Los Angeles Times and TMZ on Thursday.
The reports accompany a statement from the Los Angeles Police Department that confirmed Heche, who is in a coma following the crash, had drugs in her system when she crashed her car.
“In preliminary testing, the blood draw revealed the presence of drugs,” the LAPD statement said. “The case is being investigated as felony DUI traffic collision.”
However, LAPD spokesperson Officer Annie Hernandez told the LA Times that while the blood test showed narcotics in Heche’s system.
The department needs to perform further testing to check if those blood panels were affected by any medications given to her at the hospital where she’s being treated.
LAPD did not immediately respond to requests to confirm the presence of cocaine, which can show up in a person’s blood test up to two days after using it.
A representative for Heche, 53, said Monday that the comatose actor is in “extreme critical condition.”
