Former Playboy Playmate Valerie Mason was arrested on drug possession charges on late Friday night. 

Mason was picked up by law enforcement officials in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana and transferred to the local jail where she was booked on ‘possession of a controlled dangerous substance (a schedule II drug),’ which, according to TMZ, was meth.

However, it doesn’t seem that she actually had any drugs on her person, and she was released the next day on a $3,000 bond.
