Nick Stahl was arrested in Los Angeles on Friday after he was unable to cover his cab fare.
The "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" star confessed to the driver he didn't have enough cash or credit to pay the $84 bill as soon as he arrived at his destination so the cab man flagged down a nearby police officer.
According to, law enforcement officials then picked up Stahl for the misdemeanor and took him into custody.
He was reportedly released on Saturday after posting $500 bail.
