LINCOLN, Neb. – Actor Hopper Penn and his girlfriend have been released from jail after they were arrested on drug charges in Nebraska.

A jail dispatcher says the 24-year-old Penn and actress Uma Von Wittkamp, 26, were released Thursday after posting bond.

Penn is the son of Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn and House of Cards actress Robin Wright. He acted opposite Brad Pitt in the 2017 Netflix film War Machine. Von Wittkamp played a role in the 2015 film short Endings, Inc.

The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper stopped the couple’s car Wednesday after they allegedly failed to signal on Interstate 80. The trooper says he found 14 grams of marijuana, four amphetamine pills and 3 grams of psychedelic mushrooms in the car.

Hopper has struggled with addiction in the past.

He told The Evening Standard last year that he fell in with a “bad crowd” during his parents’ divorce, which was finalized in 2010. His spiral apparently began a month after he moved to Los Angeles, when he was badly injured in a skateboarding accident and had to undergo surgery for bleeding on the brain.

Penn has since admitted to using a variety of drugs, including methamphetamine, but said he sought treatment.

“I went to rehab because I woke up in (the) hospital and my dad said, ‘Rehab? Or bus bench?’” he said in the Evening Standard interview. “I was like, ‘I’ll take the bed.’”
