"Love booked for drugs last week"

The saga of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love gets ever more sordid.

The day before the Nirvana singer was found dead at their Seattle home, Love wound up in an L.A. hospital and under arrest after abusing heroin, tonight's Hard Copy reports.

Beverly Hills police confirm much of the story: "Courtney Cobain was arrested on the seventh of April at Century City Hospital," Lt. Joe Lombardi said Wednesday. Charges: felony possession of a controlled substance (he won't say what), possessing drug paraphernalia including a syringe and possessing/receiving stolen property.

Love was released on bail later that day; she is due to be arraigned May 5.

Also: A Seattle police report out Wednesday said Cobain overdosed on heroin in May 1993 and Love tried to treat him by injecting buprenorphine and giving him Valium, Benadryls and Tylenol with codeine.
