Charlie Heaton, who portrays Jonathan Byers on the hit Netflix show Stranger Things, was detained at LAX for alleged cocaine possession.
The Sun claimed the 23-year-old actor, who plays Jonathon Byers on the series, was caught by drug-sniffing dogs at LAX. Border officials then allegedly found traces of white powder on his personal items. The Sun cited an anonymous source who claimed there was a “very small amount” of what was confirmed to be cocaine.
Heaton was sent back to the UK, forcing him to miss the Stranger Things Season 2 premiere last night. He was not arrested, according to the newspaper, but was detained at the airport and then put back on a plane to London.
