Leif Garrett has been charged with possession of heroin, after taking the subway to score. The most grisly part of the story: he's been in jail since the weekend, and his banged-up face makes us think maybe former boy pinups don't do so well in jail.

But we are left with so many questions:

Leif was picked up on the Pershing Square subway platform, carrying heroin. At which subway stop did Leif buy his drugs? MacArthur Park? Does anyone still sell drugs at Pershing Square?

In March, he was caught with "attempted possession" of "cocaine-based substances." Does that mean crack? Speedballs? Cocaine-based lasagna?

Why oh why didn't VH-1 bail him out? How sad to leave the poor boy behind bars. You could bring cameras, we're sure. Or is celeb-reality not ready for Leif's life?
