Maryland State Police nabbed actor Eddie Deezen, known for his role as Eugene Felsnic in Grease and Grease 2, on April 8 for burglary, trespassing, and related charges.

Authorities confirmed to EW that Deezen is charged with fourth-degree burglary, two counts of trespassing, and one count of disturbing the peace after making unwanted entry into a nursing facility and refusing to leave the property.

The arrest comes two hours after Deezen was told to stay away from the property. A female opened the door, and Deezen pushed his way inside. He left the area before returning later that evening when he was arrested. The female told police that Deezen had visited the residence before, leaving behind items and accompanying notes.

Deezen was previously arrested for assault in November 2021 after refusing to leave a restaurant and throwing items at authorities.

A representative for Deezen did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Along with Grease, Deezen’s film credits include The Polar Express, Midnight Madness, and WarGames. He’s also provided voiceover work for SpongeBob SquarePants, Kim Possible, Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, and Oswald.
