Tom Sizemore has been taken off probation early after proving his innocence following an arrest in California last month.
 
The star received a visit from Los Angeles police in the early hours of September 20 after an acquaintance reportedly stole a car and claimed he was living at Sizemore's apartment.
 
But when cops ran a check on the actor's driving licence, they discovered Sizemore was a wanted man for failing to complete his community service hours stemming from a 2009 misdemeanor for spousal battery. He was taken into custody and later released on bail.
 
Sizemore maintained his innocence throughout the arrest, blaming the community service mix-up on a clerical mistake, and he has now been proved right - a judge corrected the error in court on Friday and even ended the star's probation a year-and-a-half early, according to TMZ.com.
 
The actor's new lawyer, Kent Schaffer, presented proof of Sizemore's logged volunteer hours, prompting the judge to grant Sizemore the legal victory.
