Openly gay actor busted on felony drug charge

LOS ANGELES – Openly gay actor Scott Evans is in trouble with the law after being arrested in a drug bust in L.A. on Tuesday evening.

Evans was praised for his role as Officer Fish on the ABC soap opera “One Life To Live” in 2010. Fish and Kyle (played by Brett Claywell) became the first two gay characters in soap opera history to have a long, romantic, make-out session on air, and they got married in a ceremony that rocked the fictional town of Llanview.

Late Tuesday afternoon, Evans was arrested by L.A. police after he tried to buy drugs from an undercover officer posing as a dealer, according to media reports. He was booked at 6:15 pm Tuesday on a felony charge of attempting to possess a controlled substance and bailed out at 12:30 am Wednesday, according to TMC.

TMC also wrote:

Evans reacted to the bust with a Facebook post early this morning: "Most ridiculous night of my life in LA so far. At least I made it a year before getting arrested."

Evans, 29, is the younger brother of Chris Evans, the star of “Captain America” and other hits. Scott Evans departed the soap opera in 2010 after the gay storyline was concluded, and he has gone on to play guest roles in TV fare such as the “Law & Order” franchise and “White Collar.”
