Actor Eddie Deezen‘s restaurant problems have escalated, because he just got arrested for assault after cops say he refused to leave one — and unloaded on officers on his way out.
According to a police report, Eddie — best known for playing nerdy Eugene Felsnic in the original ‘Grease’ movies — was causing a scene at a restaurant in LaVale, Maryland around lunchtime Thursday and refusing to leave, so cops were called.
Law enforcement says when deputies arrived, Eddie ran to hide behind a woman in a booth and refused multiple orders from cops to exit, so he had to be forcibly removed.
According to the report, Deezen threw numerous items at deputies during the incident — including plates, bowls and food and actually struck one of the deputies.
Eddie was eventually removed — shirtless, as you can see — and hauled off to jail, where he’s been charged with second-degree assault, disorderly conduct and trespassing.
You may recall … Deezen was involved in a bizarre situation earlier this year where a Maryland waitress accused him of being a creep and harassing her, but then he went on social media and accused her of cyberbullying.
It’s unclear if this incident has anything to do with that story … we’re working on it.
