Maryland state police announced that actor Eddie Deezen has been arrested and faces charges of burglary, trespassing and disturbing the peace. He is best known for his portrayals of class nerd Eugene Felsnic in the movie musicals Grease and Grease 2.

Police say that Deezen was arrested last week on April 8 when they were called to a nursing facility that the actor made an unwanted entry into before then refusing to leave. A female resident told police that Deezen was asked to leave the property, but he returned later that evening and forced himself in when she opened the door for him.

She also mentioned that Deezen was known in the area and had been seen at this nursing facility several times. He allegedly left behind items and notes on multiple occasions at the property as well.

Deezen has been in trouble with Maryland police as recently as the last fall as well. Cops were called when Deezen was reportedly making a scene at a Maryland restaurant and threw plates, bowls and food at the deputies as he was being forcibly removed. One photo even showed the handcuffed actor being checked by officers outside the restaurant and he had somehow removed his shirt.

He hasn’t appeared in a film or TV show since 2016. In a 2012 blog post on his personal website, Deezen joked, “Along with my unemployment checks and residual checks, I will continue living the ‘Great American Dream,’ getting paid while doing absolutely nothing.”
