Onetime Home Improvement kid Taran Noah Smith has gone from DIY to DUI, among other alleged misdeeds.

The 27-year-old was arrested early this morning in a Los Angeles suburb after cops flagged his car and found a stash of drugs, the Burbank Police Department confirms to E! News.

According to authorities, shortly past 1 a.m. an officer pulled over the star's 1998 silver Honda and smelled marijuana coming from inside.

Smith was subjected to a sobriety test and arrested, and police later found drugs in his car.

He is currently being held on a $10,000 bail, with a court date set for March 1.

From 1991 to 1999, Smith won hearts as Home Improvement's Mark Taylor, the youngest kid on the hit Tim Allen TV show.

Since the show ended, Smith has kept a low profile, ditching showbiz for eclectic pursuits that included stints as an installation artist and as a founder of a vegan food company.
