The arraignment of former Hole frontperson Courtney Love on drug charges has been postponed to October 31, from its original date this past Friday (October 10). Love’s attorneys asked a Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Friday if the arraignment could be delayed to give them time to review the charges, which the city prosecutor did not protest. Love herself was not present for the proceedings.
The singer and actress was arrested on October 2 after she was observed breaking the windows of her alleged ex-boyfriend’s house and trying to enter. Police on the scene determined she was under the influence of a controlled substance and booked her. If convicted of the misdemeanor charge, Love faces up to a year in jail.
Less than an hour after making bail, Love was rushed to the hospital and treated for an overdose.
Police spokespersons did not divulge what substance Love was allegedly using, but she alluded in a message on her official website last weekend that she was using Xanax, a prescription anti-anxiety drug.
Love’s debut solo album, America’s Sweetheart, has been postponed from a late October release to February 10.
