More drama than a daytime soap! Days of Our Lives actor Casey Moss was arrested on Monday, Oct. 26, after he allegedly tried to punch a hotel bartender in suburban Phoenix, Ariz.
Scottsdale police told the Associated Press on Wednesday, Oct. 28, that officials were called to the bar at the W Scottsdale Hotel shortly after midnight on Monday. The actor, 21, reportedly was intoxicated and attempted to hit a bartender after the employee refused to serve him another drink.
A friend unsuccessfully attempted to hold him back, but the soap star made his way free and eventually shoved a fellow bar patron. At one point, he was tackled by the bar's bouncer.
When police arrived, Moss allegedly fought with an officer and struggled to break free once again. Police then had to take him down. Once he was handcuffed, Moss was asked his name, to which he yelled: "I'm Casey Moss, and I'm an actor on Days of Our Lives!"
Moss was released from jail on Tuesday. He was in Scottsdale for the book signing of Days of Our Lives 50 Years alongside his costars. He's currently facing charges for assault, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.
Meanwhile, his iconic soap is anticipating its 50th anniversary on Nov. 8.
