Scott Evans, soap opera actor and younger brother of "Captain America" star Chris Evans, has been arrested after trying to purchase drugs during an undercover bust.
Evans was arrested Tuesday evening while attempting to purchase drugs from an undercover LAPD officer, TMZ reported. Attempting to possess a controlled substance in California is a felony. There is no word on what narcotics Evans tried to purchase.
TMZ reported that Evans responded to the arrest on his Facebook, posting: "Most ridiculous night of my life in LA so far. At least I made it a year before getting arrested." He moved from his native Sudbury, Mass., to Los Angeles to jumpstart his career, according to the New York Daily News. Evans was arrested at 6:15 p.m. and booked, according to the the LA County Sheriff's Department inmate sheet obtained by E! News. He was later released on $10,000 bail.
The 29-year-old has appeared on "Guiding Light," "Fringe," and "White Collar," as well as playing a small role in the film "Confessions of a Shopaholic." He is best known for playing Officer Oliver Fish on ABC's "One Life To Live."
The openly gay actor made headlines when his "One Life" character got involved in a relationship with a man on the show and religious co-star Patricia Maucier walked off the set rather than be involved in the gay storyline.
"I think there are a lot of people who got famous and had success at an early age before they were able to deal with their sexuality and so now they feel to have to hide it in this industry," he told WeLoveSoaps.net. "It is tough. It’s a hard business to be in with that. For some reason, which is beyond me in 2009, it’s still not universally accepted. I think it’s tough, and I think I’m lucky that I was able to be out before it started. Yes, I have bridges to cross and things to deal with being an out actor. But it’s fun so far."
Currently, Scott is filming with Selena Gomez for the 2013 flick "Behaving Badly," the Daily News reported.
