Actor Tom Sizemore's probation in a domestic abuse case involving former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss has been revoked because he failed to complete a drug test. But the judge allowed Sizemore to remain free pending an evidence hearing on Nov. 8. Sizemore, 42, who stars in the film "Paparazzi," which opened Friday, was sentenced in October to six months on misdemeanor charges of physically abusing Fleiss during their two-year relationship.
