Oh, come on.

You remember when Andrew Keegan started a religion, right? If not, the former teen heartthrob from 7th Heaven and 10 Things I Hate About You started his own "new age" religion last year, and now it has been busted for selling Kombucha -- fermented tea that has the tiniest amount of alcohol in it -- at Keegan's Full Circle spiritual community center.

Keegan and his fellow enlightened were busted by undercover agents at the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, who found that the beverage was being served during a fundraiser for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

"Kombucha is something we’d never imagine to be an illegal substance," Keegan told the Argonaut. "And it's frustrating the system has that perspective."

Not to rush to the defense of a child star now heading his totally-not-cult, but you have to imagine the ABC has bigger things to worry about than a tea drink your weird neighbor uses to detox.

Nonetheless, Keegan's center was given a misdemeanor citation for selling alcohol without a license.

We can't help but get the feeling that this kind of thing could only happen in Los Angeles. (We're not all like this, we promise!)
