(Newser) – Sean Penn’s son, arrested last week at his Malibu high school, is not facing drug charges. Sources close to the investigation say he was picked up for drug possession, but tell Radar that the drugs—no names given—were medications prescribed to Hopper, and that the district attorney's office has shut the book on the case. Even so, Perez Hilton adds that the 16-year-old was rumored to have been kicked out of his San Francisco high school last year for drug offenses.
