‘Grease’ Actor Eddie Deezen Found Mentally Unfit To Stand Trial For Nursing Home Burglary
Months after he was arrested at a Maryland nursing home for burglary and trespassing, actor Eddie Deezen, best known for Grease, has been found incompetent to stand trial for the charges.
He will be treated for an unspecified mental health disorder at the Maryland Department of Health until a point where he is no longer considered a danger to himself or others.
It seems like charges could still be pursued if Deezen recovers. His prior charges have been reduced as well, and he now may be charged with assault and disorderly conduct instead of fourth-degree burglary, two counts of trespassing and disturbing the peace.
Deezen was arrested in April when he barged into a privately-owned nursing home. The woman who called the cops said Deezen has appeared at the property several times and has left behind items along with notes on a few occasions.
Best known as playing Eugene Felsnic in Grease and Grease 2, also appeared in films like War Games and has contributed a significant number of voice performances to children’s cartoon shows.
