Soap Actor Dylan Patton Arrested For CocaineBy: Sean Patterson - May 17, 2013
It’s no secret that drugs are easy to find in Hollywood, especially for stars. However, those same stars aren’t usually assumed to be selling the drugs themselves.
This week, soap opera actor Dylan Patton has been arrested for cocaine possession. According to a TMZ report, Patton, who starred on Days of Our Lives in 2009, has been charged with possession of cocaine with intent to sell. The star is reportedly still in jail, with a bail set at $30,000. He faces up to 9 years in prison if convicted.
TMZ had previously reported that Patton was selling cocaine from his home. The bust was made by an undercover police officer who claims he bought cocaine from Patton. Police then raided Patton’s house on Tuesday.
Patton is best-known for playing the character Will Horton on Days of Our Lives. Patton played the character for nearly one year, and earned an Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Younger Actor. He left the show in 2010, and the role of Will Horton was recast.
