Actor Eddie Deezen, who played teenage nerd Eugene Felsnic in the “Grease” franchise was arrested on multiple charges stemming from a nursing home invasion last week.
Deezen, who starred in 1983’s “War Games” and kid’s hit “Punky Brewster,” was arrested by Maryland State Police on April 8, on charges of fourth-degree burglary, trespassing, and disturbing the peace.
The actor, who has made a career voicing animated characters in hits including “Dexter’s Laboratory,” “Kim Possible,” and “SpongeBob SquarePants,” entered a nursing facility and refused to leave.
He reportedly forced his way inside as a woman opened the door, and was told to leave the premises. He came back two hours later and was arrested. The woman he pushed past told officers that he had visited the facility multiple times and left behind items with notes attached.
The incident is not Dezeen’s first brush with the law, in September 2021, he was arrested for assault in a similar incident. The “Polar Express” actor reportedly caused a scene at a Maryland restaurant during their lunch rush and refused to leave.
When police arrived, he hid behind a woman sitting in a booth and threw flatware at the officers trying to remove him. He was charged with second degree assault, disorderly conduct and trespassing.
It’s unclear if the restaurant is the same one that Dezeen had reportedly harassed a waitress at in June 2021.
“Eddie Deezen is a f–king CREEP who comes into my work at least once a week, calls and asks other servers for my schedule, and if he comes in and i’m not wearing makeup HE LEAVE,” the waitress wrote on Twitter. “And this grown a– old man has the balls to post this on facebook about me im losing my mind.”
Along with the caption, she included several screenshots of Dezeen’s lengthy Facebook post about her.
He described the woman as a “knockout” and “eye candy,” but claimed that he wasn’t trying to objectify her. He went on a rant about how he loved when she wore fake eyelashes, but she had stopped applying them after he left her “little” notes commenting on her beauty.
Dezeen then accused the woman and her friends of cyberbullying him and claimed he was filing a restraining order against her.
