Former “One Life to Live” actor Scott Evans was arrested Tuesday evening after he tried to buy narcotics from a police officer who was undercover, posing as a drug dealer.
Scott, who is the brother of “The Avengers'” Captain America, Chris Evans, was booked around 6 p.m. for attempt to possess a controlled substance. He was released shortly after midnight.
When he got home, Evans posted on Facebook: “Most ridiculous night of my life in LA so far. At least I made it a year before getting arrested.” According to TMZ, it’s unclear what drug he was looking for when he got busted.
A “One Life to Live” fan favorite, Evans played Officer Oliver Fish on the show, who made headlines for his romantic relationship with another man, played by “One Tree Hill’s” Brett Claywell. Evans and Claywell were let go from the show in 2010 after the story “failed to resonate with the mainstream audience,” according to ABC.
Rumors spread that Evans and Claywell were fired for partying and unprofessional behavior, but Claywell denied the allegations. “Scott and I treated each scene and each moment with the dedication and
respect it deserved, and poured our hearts into those roles. Any stories
to the contrary, especially this one, are malicious and offensive.
Every scene that was filmed is a testament to that work ethic,” he told Zap2it.
