Reality TV star Jonathan Manfre has been indicted for third degree felony possession of the hallucinogen Ketamine.
Manfre was reportedly charged for possession of the drug, which is legally prescribed to animals as a tranquilizer, on Dec. 3, according to Radar.com.
The new "Jersey Shore" cast member, known as The Unit, was introduced on the show's season premiere as a friend of Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.
Manfre was previously arrested last summer when cops allegedly found him in possession of a controlled substance.

If found guilty of the current drug charge, Manfre faces up to five years in prison.
Speaking to TMZ.com on Friday, Manfre insisted he is not concerned about possible jail time and added, "I've had issues in the past and I've flourished coming out of them ... I'm a complete man and I'm sober."
His next court date is Jan. 10.
