Courtney Love has been arrested and charged with two counts of drug possession by police in Beverly Hills.

The singer and actress surrendered voluntarily, according to District Attorney spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons.

She was charged with possession of the prescription painkillers hydrocodone and oxycodone.

These charges stem from her arrest earlier this month after breaking windows at a friend's house.

As a result, Love also lost custody of her 11-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain.

If convicted, she may be eligible for a drug education program rather than going to jail.
