Who knew Alicia Silverstone had a brother? She does, and he apparently runs a pot farm—specifically, one that was busted during a drug raid at which Bowe Bergdahl was present last week in California. David Silverstone, 43, was charged with felony marijuana cultivation and possession for sale, and thrown in the clink on $25,000 bond after the July 21 raid, the New York Daily News reports.

The Mirror reports that Silverstone was arrested on an adjacent property to the one where Bergdahl was found. Per the Daily News, Silverstone shares his famous sister's penchant for "holistic living." Alicia Silverstone declined to comment on her brother's arrest, a rep told the paper. (She might be mum on that, but Silverstone has lots of advice for moms.)
