What is going on these days with all of these former soap stars getting in trouble with the law?  Now you can add former One Life to Live star,  Scott Evans (Ex-Oliver Fish) to the growing list! Evans, who played a fictional cop in Llanview got busted last night for attempting to buy drugs off an LAPD undercover cop!

According to TMZ.com, “Law enforcement sources tell us Evans was arrested Tuesday evening when he tried to score narcotics from an LAPD officer posing as a dealer.  Evans was booked at 6:15PM for attempt to possess a controlled substance … a felony. He bailed out around 12:30AM.  It’s unclear what drug Evans was trying to buy.”

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.”

So soapers, are you shocked at Evans getting busted?  Weigh-in!

    I often wonder what ex-soap stars have been up too once their show goes off the air and now I know. There aren’t that many roles for actors anymore so I imagine it is a tough life to face, then again, welcome to America right now. Too bad some people turn to drugs while others just try to survive each day as best they can.

    Don’t the police have better things to do than entrap citizens for victimless “crimes”? Waste of taxpayers time and money.

    Drugs are bad and I want my tax dollars going for this. Victimless crime? We all end up being victims of drugs.. People get addicted to drugs and then break into homes and steal to support their habits, shoplift from stores and prices go up. They get high and drive and kill others on the road… When drug addicted people get high and they kill, rape and do much damage to others that are not involved in their lives. So I thank the police for entrapping individuals.

    I am for saving the lives of the innocent….

    Everything you mention they could do and have done on alcohol. More people does those things on alcohol than they do on drugs.

    just because “they could do and have done” the same thing on alcohol doesn’t make THIS right.

    “well, he’s already robbed a bank…he might as well steal a car too”. ridiculous rationalization.

    Bethy I agree. However, I am against the hard addictive stuff such as meth and heroine. All those do is ruin lives.

    @Tsuds – Apparently I am already older and wiser than you…..One of the benefits of having my own opinion and not caring what others think.

    I’m not surprised. Drugs are a big problem in Hollywood as in our country. As much as we may like or admire an actor, we don’t know what they do in their private lives. I never watched OLTL nor am I a Scott Evans fan, but I hope this is a wake-up call for him.

    “At least I made it a year before getting arrested.” Does that mean he’s been behaving like this for at least a year. He deserves what he gets.

    I believe he is referring to living in LA for the last year and the fact that so many show business folks get arrested. I don’t think he meant doing drugs.

    Disappointing,but it’s not like he is a murdered or anything. There’s worse things he could have done.
