Another young actor has been arrested for a DWI and this time it’s former One Life to Live star Brandon Buddy, who has had some previous trouble with the law.
The actor who played Cole Thornhart opposite Kristen Alderson’s Starr Manning on ABC’s One Life to Live from 2006-2010 apparently was busted on Sunday in his home state of Texas, when cops were alerted!
Apparently an intoxicated Buddy — covered in scratches – was seen taking off in his car after grabbing beer at an Austin gas station. This is according to a report from TMZ, and the mug shot provided by the entertainment news outlet accompanying the story.
After being stopped, an allegedly semi-conscious Buddy was evaluated at a nearby hospital and arrested. But in addition the report goes on to say, “Brandon is being investigated for possessing dangerous drugs,” because the police found prescription drugs in his car on January 4th of this year as well. In the past, Buddy reportedly had some other issues with substance abuse during his time at One Life.
This is not a story we like to report, since Buddy did such an admirable job in the role of the troubled Cole of Llanview.
