Tatum O’Neal (who won an Academy Award at the age of 10 for her performance in Paper Moon) was arrested last night and charged with buying cocaine and crack.

According to today’s New York Post, the 44-year-old actress actually pulled the “Do you know who I am?” card when she was caught buying drugs by police. Police found a drug pipe and screen on O’Neal as well as the cocaine. O’Neal originally claimed she bought the drugs because she was “researching a part’ but later change her story and asked the cops, “Can’t we just forget about this?”

O’Neal has three grown children  with her former husband, tennis legend John McEnroe. In her 2004 memoir “A Paper Life,” O’Neal wrote that boozing and drug-taking was in her DNA.
